All natural bouquet additions

 

For a natural look, try combining various foliage with dried plant material – think lotus pods, seed heads and maybe a burst of color with some fresh flower stems.

This bouquet features succulents and natural elements.

These dried lotus pods add texture and color to the bouquet.

Herbs – Green and Creative!

Consider using Herbs in bouquets and as boutonnieres combined with flowers or on their own.  Sage can be all green, green with purple, green with yellow.  Rosemary can have a blue/green cast.  So many to choose from!

Peonies in Summer

Peonies in the Summertime
Once our local peonies bloom out, availability changes but a good substitute any time of year is a garden rose.  Some have that lovely rose scent but all have the high petal count that gives the beautiful lush look that we love in the peony flowers.

Spring is Sprung!

Spring is flying by (with all its crazy weather included!).  Our tulips and daffodils have come and gone but the rhododendrons, fringe tree, kousa doogwood, yellowood trees are just lovely this week!  We try and get a walk in every few days since the landscape changes so quickly in Spring. Annual plants and vegetables are starting to take off in the garden also. Looking forward to warm days, barbeques, summer concerts – all the joys of summer.
