June is the month for fragrant blooms in the garden, and one of my favorites is gardenia. These huge creamy white flowers exude a rich scent that greets you each time you step outside.
Gardenias are a very short lived cut flower though, with a vase life of just one to two days. But it is enough for a wedding bouquet. And the fragrance will make your heart sing!
For this particular bouquet, I have left the gardenias on their own stems instead of wiring them since they were being paired with other garden flowers.
Those flowers include other whites and ivories that are blooming now such as foxglove, feverfew, zinnias and calla lilies.
