Garden flowers

 Hi Everyone
 Happy Friday
These flowers will be planted in the garden
 this weekend
But in the mean time they
 look right at home in the dining room resting in a vintage basket that is always 
waiting to be filled with flowers
 One of my favorite tricks to save money is to 
shop our local nursery for flowers I can  later plant in the garden
and eventually cut to bring in the house
 These multi colored  hearty flowers called stock will grow
and spread through out the garden

They were only 3.79 each 
{a bargain}
at the nursery
 much less than a bouquet would cost and 
once planted will  multiply and spread 
 Stock is a very hardy flower to grow and it has a heavenly fragrance too

Last year we planted several different flowers
 and the stock was so plentiful we ended up selling
 bouquets on the corner in cans for a dollar
They were very popular !!!
All the neighbors keep asking us if we are planting them again this year

We have our fingers crossed it will not rain ALL weekend here
 so we can start playing
 in the garden
romantic saying for today
"A Kiss seals two souls for a moment in time"



  1. Awesome!!

    I have never seen those flowers before - or perhaps we cann them something different here.

    I am so excited you may be able to work in your garden, we have a bit of a wait here still. (Ohio.)

    Have a great weekend!

  2. So pretty right where they are but planting will be fun for sure

  3. Those are awesome. I wonder where I could find those? Our stores and nurseries are finally getting stuff in.

  4. These flowers are gorgeous! Have a wonderful weekend, Kellie xx

  5. I haven't seen stock in years, Pam! Love 'em! They look great in your basket. I would plant some in a pot to put on our outddoor table near the door, but I know the bees will love it and my hubby will hate it! So I may just look for some to plant around our condo. I will probably go with some kind of pretty foliage plant for the table/door area.

    I'm seeing bits of green coming up, but since we weren't here last Spring, I'm wondering what it all is. I'm looking forward to seeing what comes up before I go buy anything!

  6. These flowers are so pretty and it's a good idea to buy them for later planting in the garden. Love the idea.
    The vingette is so pretty and springy.


  7. I have never heard of these flowers but they are certainly very pretty! I love to cut flowers and bring them in my home! I just cut daffodils yesterday and combined them with a store bought bouquet.~Patti

  8. Very pretty Pam! I love doing the same thing.

    Have a great weekend.

  9. I just love your stock flowers! I hope I can plant them here in CO this year but I usually only see them as cut flowers. I will be looking for them for sure. I love how they smell. Your photos look gorgeous!


  10. So beautiful.Love the colors and shades.

    I'd love to have you link to Seasonal Sundays.

  11. What a beautiful bouquet ... I've never heard of stock flowers before, but they sound like a dream for the garden. I can only imagine how excited your neighbors were when you shared them.

  12. I love stock too~Thank you for linking up at Feathered Nest Friday!
