I am not making so many bouquets these days, but luckily my friends still are and I love looking at them. Today I would like to show you the little wonders from Sabine’s garden. Sabine is a German copywriter and blogger and online shop-owner. Her lovely blog is called azurweiss and her shop la mesa.
We first met virtually through the swapping action Post aus meiner Küche last year and in real life in February in Munich during the blogger meet up “I love you blogs and coffee”. She posts a lot of charming flower arrangements on her blog, and has participated many times in our #2flowergirls photo challenge.
I am a big fan of her Instagram feed, where she posts a lot of lovely flowers. She usually presents simple flowers in very pretty glass or white china vases. Some are from the flea-market and some can be purchased in her online-store.
Today, I am so glad to be showing you some of Sabine’s bouquets from her beloved garden along with a little interview:
Dear Sabine, what kind of flowers do you grow in your garden?
I’m very much in love with cottage gardens and I grow typical cottage garden flowers like cornflowers, cosmoses, delphiniums, peonies and old roses together with tons of herbs like sage, rosemary, mint and chives. And not to forget some tomatoes, courgette and pumpkins. Our garden looks quite romantic and often a little bit higgledy-piggledy (because I don’t have time to keep all the weeds away) but this contrasts quite well with our house which is pure white and very functionalist, almost Bauhaus-style.
What does your garden mean to you?
Honestly – I think I couldn’t live without it. Working in the garden just makes me happy and I wish I had more time to spend in this little green relaxing zone.
What kind of vases do you like using for your bouquets?
Most of my vases are made of white porcelain, many of them are vintage. I like to arrange them in groups with flowers assorted by colours – mostly white, pale pink or blue. I also use transparent or blue glass vases or even glasses (vintage or new). Liqueur glasses for example are wonderful to arrange flowers like forget-me-nots or single blossoms. Especially in autumn and winter I often use rough ceramics (mostly vintage) to decorate, for example, dahlias, asters or just branches.
Thank you so much Sabine for sharing with us your lovely pictures and your love for flowers.
I wish you all a great day and hope to talk to you soon if baby love doesn’t decide to make an appearance. Only 7 days to go!
