~Quiet Anticipation~

~the Bride's Bouquet~
Here's Thyme to give you courage
Rosemary for the past
Sweet Lavender, a loyal heart
Yarrow, a love to last~

This beautiful herbal bouquet quietly awaits the arrival of the bride. We're celebrating today with a wedding in the herb gardens at the strike of five. The gardens have been spruced, the roses are blooming, the peonies fragrant, the paths swept, the rains have ended, the sun is shining. Susanna crafted the bouquet full of symbolic herbs. The bride's bouquet poem is from a quaint bit of poetry from Old England which quotes herbs and their symbolism.

Can I get married again? Of course, still to The Herbal Husband!
