Bouquets to get you through Winter

jjstatz29(5)February 25, 2014

Before I moved out to the country I lived in Omaha and worked as a floral designer.

Thought I would post a few pictures to help those of us still stuck in winter to get us through.

From when I was working for the floral shop

Hope you enjoyed and may your winter be over soon (I mean, unless you need more chilling hours or something)

Bonus:

Monster seedless cucumbers... and my reaction ha.

Love the first bouquet with iris and peony. What's the little pinkish filler flower? TIA

Purple Lunaria - I regretted picking them once I realized what it was, but the fragrance is strong - similar to that perfume camp-fire scent of heather.

Thanks! I have the white version. Had no idea it also came in purple. I like the way you used it.

I know I just recently found a few different colors of lunaria... and with different colored pods! There's one in particular that gets purple mottled foliage and purple foliage - Lunaria Annua âÂÂRosemary VereyâÂÂ. As well as a variety that gets purple flowers and red-bronze pods - I think it's 'Pennies in Bronze'.

Speaking of pods check out Thysanocarpus radians 'Fringe Pod'... Uhnnstt... I need it in my life.

Can see you are a floral artist. I love the furry buds, in the second photo, haven't seen them since I left England. The dark pink arrangement in photo 6 is fabulous.

Good ol' pussy willow - It grows like a weed here! Haven't a giant one in the backyard

The dark pink one is hot lady roses, pink gloriosa, green hypericum, and lily grass.
