{Smell The Roses} Picking Wildflower Bouquets

It was two of my coworkers’ birthdays last month and my favorite thing to do is surprise them with a desk full of happiness. I garland bombed one of them with twisted crepe tassels, bought yummy things from Olympic Provisions and Pix Patisserie, and I picked giant bouquets of wildflowers that looked like they sprouted from the vase and overtook their tabletops. Seeing their faces is always my favorite, but in this case picking the wildflowers covertly in the night with A was part of the fun. A hillside near my place was completely full of sweet peas, clovers, lupine, thistle, asters, wheat, queen’s anne lace, and more. All the mixing and matching was already done for me! (Photos by A.)

Have you ever picked wildflower bouquets?
