One of my favorite decorating tricks is to bring fresh flowers into our farmhouse kitchen, dining room, and every other room under our metal roof! Last week the daffodils were in bloom and I brought a big bouquet of their sunshine inside. This week the flowerbeds are filled with bunches of blue … Virginia Bluebells, that is.
This beautiful-hued perennial is quite prolific, spreading itself throughout the garden a bit more each year. Excited to see the bluebells in full bloom, I grabbed my enamel pitcher, rushed outside and stuffed it with these lazy-headed bluebells.
With the sun streaming in the window of our farmhouse kitchen, the Virginia Bluebells seem to perk their droopy heads up just a bit. This is such a lovely flower in the garden, spreading itself and creating a sea of blue.
This is the first open shelf we added to our farmhouse kitchen after installing the white bead board. We recently installed more open kitchen shelves in here and I really like the look as opposed to closed cabinets.
I love all the white in our farmhouse kitchen. A lot of people ask if it’s hard to keep clean, but it really isn’t. We used white kitchen cupboard paint on the shelves and bead board and it wipes clean quite easily.
The Virginia Bluebells provide a pop of blue in our farmhouse kitchen, keeping it fresh looking. Soon the bluebells will fade and that means the lilacs will be coming inside. I much prefer to use garden flowers in the home instead of store bought. They’re cheaper, too!
Along with the Virginia Bluebells, Grape Hyacinths are also making their appearance in the garden. I’ll put these pretty little things in a miniature white ironstone pitcher when I’m done taking photos.
It’s so nice to have garden flowers in our farmhouse kitchen again. It’s been a long winter and I tire of roses and carnations after awhile. I long for the tulips, lilacs, hydrangeas, cone flowers, and more. Each month brings new floral joy to our home.
How about you? How does your garden grow?
