As spring turns to summer the cool flowers slow down and the heat-loving flowers take their place, but the shift starts subtly. The poppies burn in the heat but the bachelor’s buttons look like they’ll never stop. The larkspur blooms in a flash, and the sunflowers and zinnias show promising buds.This post is part of an occasional series inspired by Erin Benzakein of Floret, who posts her own Seasonal Flower Alliance photos and invites others a respond with photos of their own seasonal bouquets.
This bouquet is made with larkspur, matricaria, bachelor’s buttons, calendula, nasturtium leaves, and calla lilies. They are such a treat to work with. I love how they slide down among everything else, barely peaking out but stunning in their beauty. These ones are called Captain Rosette.
