Today's picture/Week three CSA flowers


Note the basil! This is the second week basil has been part of the bouquet, and I use it. Today there was also a free head of romaine lettuce. Such a fun stop each Wednesday. There's more about the flower CSA here.

  1. Basil in a bouquet! I've never seen that before, but what a great idea!

    1. It is indeed a great idea! I've heard she also uses garlic scapes in bouquets. A little cottage garden in a vase!

  3. I have used parsley in bouquets, but, never basil.
    What a pretty and full arrangement. Your CSA looks like a weekly treat, Nan.

  7. So, so pretty. Though I'd likely sneeze. Fresh flowers and me - not good friends. But no sneezing with pictures. I hate allergies. LOL

    1. I'm sorry about the allergies. Are you allergic to every kind of flower?

  8. LOve the basil. I often use thyme or pineapple sage in my bouquets but never thought of basil. :)

  9. I can't believe such lush and beautiful things actually grow in the ground! We have a whole different set of flowers here.

    1. Maybe you could post about the flowers growing now, unless you already have and I missed it. I have a lot of catching up to do.

  11. I love this idea and the reality of it, too. It brightens up the day when so much of recent news is discouraging.
