The flowers of spring and early summer burst onto the scene with brilliant colors and heady fragrances. If you cultivate a cutting garden, take a stroll to pluck a few of your favorites, or carry blossoms home by the armful from a farmers' market or florist's shop.
No matter where you get your flowers, arranging them is as simple as the blooms are beautiful. Choose one or several kinds of flowers, cut the stems, then put them immediately into lukewarm water.
Enjoy these fragile beauties while they last, then replace the bouquet with another. Their fragrance will linger in your memory long after the blooms have faded.
