Floral Verde, Bridal bouquet of Burgundy Scabiosa, Burgundy Hellebores, Burgundy Sweet Peas, fritillaria, maiden hair fern, dusty miller, solomon's seal foliage

Designed by Janet of Floral Verde

I’ve been infatuated with the above bouquet designed by Janet of Floral Verde since I saw it the beginning of this week. Such fabulous colors and textures!

As for the highlights of my past week…

  • Last Sunday Patty of Brittany Flowers and I attended a flower show at Skyline Flower Growers Wholesale. Patty & I had so much fun watching the show and visiting with each other. This was my first visit to Skyline, always good to know who the suppliers are in the area, and I picked up some great tulips from them.
  • Chad & I visited the Skagit Tulip Festival this week in Mt. Vernon — wow, the endless array of tulips to see! I plan to share the photos from the festival in a week or so on the blog.

Just a reminder – Debra Prinzing and I are teaching floral design classes in Seattle on May 3rd – more information here.

Oh, and the Hellebore Hunting excursion with Riz Reyes that I mentioned on last Friday?
This was the end result…

  1. I could stare at that pictures all day long! That is so beautiful. Also, the bridal bouquet just lovely. I would love to go hellebore hunting and get a great find like that.

    • Thanks, Kathleen! The hunting was fun and mesmerizing .. and the arrangement was truly a pleasure to design. I’ve become quite fond of Hellebores and all their interesting colors.

  2. Thank you for sharing my bouquet! Your hellebore arrangement is stunning!

  3. i absolutely adore hellebores and your arrangement is so beautiful. Is it arranged in floral foam? Do hellebores last long arranged that way? I have a very shady garden and lots of hellebore – always wondering how to arrange them…you have inspired me. :-))

    • Hi Louise,
      Thank you for your kind words about my Hellebore arrangement. The are arranged in chicken wire, I wadded up chicken wire and then taped across the top to hold the wire in the container. I have found that Hellebores do not like floral foam and will wilt very quickly.
      Your garden sounds lovely!
