In the next post I'm going to show you step by step how to arrange a bouquet and a vase with lots of mixed flowers, while here I'm going to let the pictures and beautiful colors speak for themselves.
When it comes to containers, for me there are no rules ;) if you are one of my regular readers you should know by now that when it comes to creativity, I refuse to be limited by whatever rule. I love to be free and experiment and play!! That's how the best work comes out in my experience. So if it can hold water, or oasis (florists sponge) it's ok for me.
|Geraniums, Queen Ann's lace (cow parsley), forget- me- nots (Myosotis), chives (Allium schoenoprasum), Aquilegia.|
While strolling around, I found on the road verges these beautiful Aquilegias in different colors...
... and then mixed them with herbs to create a stunning bouquet. I will show you step by step how I arranged this bouquet in my next post.
|Hydrangea quercifolia, Aquilegia, rosemary, lilac (Syringa vulgaris).|
|Here I added daisies (Leucanthemum) and Allium.|
|Delphinium. Eye catching in a simple, simple bottle rescued from the recycling bin.|
|A normal bottle can be used for tall flowers.|
|Crataegus Paul's Scarlet (hawthorn or thornapple).|
|In a glass milk bottle!|
|Roses, Geranium, Lonicera (honeysuckle), Antirrhinum (snapdragon), Verbena.|
Garden flowers (with shorter stems than those sold at florists or supermarkets) are perfect to be arranged in mugs/tea cups/ teapots.
