How to totally fail at returning from blogging vacation

It’s already July!?!?!?!? Oops!

Yeah, it’s been over a week since we returned from Alabama. I haven’t blogged, tried any new recipes, taken any food or garden related pictures, or really been home much since we returned.

A blog at rest, tends to stay at rest.

So, in an effort to jump start my tardy return……..

How to use garden flowers and mint to make a pretty floral arrangement.


1. Snip pretty garden flowers of various colors.
2. Cut 3-6 mint sprigs to use in your arrangement.
3. Place in vase.
4. Fill vase with water.
5. Enjoy.


How have you been spending your time so far this summer?



  1. Pretty zinnias! (I left mine in the garen, but snapped their pics today, too πŸ™‚

    • Thanks! They are pretty and plentiful. I snip a few every few weeks to treat myself to cut flowers in my living room or dining room.

  2. I was just starting to wonder where you were ;). Glad to have you back. I like the idea of mint for extra greenery.

  3. Glad you’re a’bloggin’ again….I’m kinda running into the issue of trying not having all my blogs sound the same……

  4. I’ve done that…come back from a break, but not write a word…
    Glad you’re back. Love the zinnias – they remind me of childhood.

  5. Welcome back! I hope you had a great time…and I love the idea of using mint in a bouquet!

  6. Very good return! I have NEVER thought of using mint in my flower arranging. Quite brilliant! Glad you’re back! πŸ™‚ Debra

  7. Happy Fourth!
