It has finally happened! There are no more flowers to be picked from the garden - the frost took the last of them a few days ago. Which means I will have to rely on the grocery store from now until spring.

Yesterday I bought a bouquet of yellow freesia when I was getting some milk. Don't you love freesia. They have such pretty complex flowers arranged along their stem and they come in such a variety of gorgeous colours. Fortunately the store only had a few colours or I might still be there trying to chose which ones to buy.
The bouquet came with lots of fern leaves, but I separated them and added the fern leaves to the blue salvia that we had on the table all last week and is still going strong.
I paired the freesia with one of my favourite thrift store tablecloths (do I say that every week?) I have a collection of different gingham cloths - yellow, beige, brown, navy, red - and I love how they look on the table. This one has been used a lot and has a few spots, but I still love it.
I'm not sure why, but looking at my Bouquet Day pictures side-by-side on my Pinterest Bouquet Day board makes me ridiculously happy. I love seeing the progression of flowers that have bloomed in the garden and the pairing of the different colours of flowers with the tablecloths. Almost nobody visits this board so I feel like it is my secret place, just for my own enjoyment (which I'm sharing with all of you).
