This week I have been so busy I did not get the opportunity to photograph the arrangement for my own table. It was another sweet pink creation. The only arrangement I did photograph was one that went to one of my “customers.” I snapped a quick cell phone pic for Instagram. Therefore it is becoming my arrangement for this Thursday.
While out cutting blooms for my weekly arrangements I found that I had enough of a single color scheme to make monochromatic designs this week. One was a soft purple, another was deep reds and the last a bright sunny yellow & orange.
I had a number of Canary Yellow Zinnias open and as luck would have it, by the grace of seed variation one came out orange.
For foliage I added a few snips off of the Witch Hazel shrub and the additional blooms are from a large flowering coreopsis that was grown from a seed mix. I threw the seed mix out to quickly fill in a space last year and there were a few things I kept.
While I don’t love the photos, I love the arrangement. It reminds me of the Summer to come.
