Bouquets for Friday May 9th

Still working primarily with tulips and daffodils but a few other things are now available. I used bleeding hearts for the first time today. all the "cool" colored bouquets also contained lilacs. Lilacs don't hold that long as cut flowers but most people are happy to get them because of the scent. Most of todays flowers looked something like these:

A few of the bouquets also contained Mertensia virginica (Virginia bluebells). These are not the greatest cut flowers - they drop petals and sometimes wilt - but almost no other blue flowers are available at this time of year so they're nice to use.
