small fun project: flowers

I was pruning this big shrub in the front garden the other day; this time of year it is covered in these gorgeous white blooms, and I felt so awful cutting anything off it that I cut the blooms from the branches that I'd pruned, and since our friend Katie was coming over that evening, I made her a little bouquet with some roses (the red = knockout; the pinks = the real knockout, "gertrude jekyll"), and pea shoots (chinese snap peas, with purple blooms) so she could take home some pretty sights and scents from our garden.

playing with flowers is so much fun; I hope I get to be good at this one day, I really do.
