I can never decide if I enjoy cut flowers more, or leaving them in the beds to admire every time I look out the window or weed the front garden! I planted a whole bunch of tulips in the fall, and the cool spring gave me a fabulous display. This was, however, the first time I allowed myself to cut any (along with the short irises and the globe flower.)
I guess it’s all how you look at it.
Right now my Hope for Humanity rose is taunting me, with no less than 15 roses all in one bunch at the very top of one stem. All it would take would be one snip…but can I bring myself to do it?
