Seasonal Flower Alliance (06/07/2014)


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.DSC_0021This 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.

DSC_0032This 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.
