A Bounty of September Blooms (flower arrangement)

the_dark_lady(z7 Amelia VA)September 5, 2011

We have heavy rains on the forecast, so I decided to cut a few flowers and bring them home.

In this arrangement I used a lot of different roses:

1. Larissa

2. Pompon Flower Circus

3. Rose Marie

4. Kosmos

5. Lyda Rose

6. St. Swithun

7. Francis Blaise

8. Marinette

9. Bouquet Parfait

Companion plants are Sedum, Indigofera, Salvia Farinacea 'Victoria White', some kind of pink Aster.

Please take a look.

Oh good grief - that is STUNNING!!! I can't believe you can do that yourself. I couldn't in a million years.

What a spectacular arrangement. So many rose names I haven't even heard of. Lovely frame too.
I'm going to enjoy it as a desktop.

Thank you very much, Carol and Inga!!!
WoW!!!! Inga, that's an honor for me (my own photo on your desktop :)))
I have a few photos of mine that I rotate as desktop background. Here are some of them.

Not a rose, but very pretty IMO.

Wowza, Drop Dead Gooooorgeous!!! The non-roses are so gorgeous and romantic themselves, and I love the Bouquet Salmon and Pinks! I love the tiny sedum clusterings scattered throughout the bouquet!

You really outdid yourself with that arrangement. Such warm, opulent colors. Has a pleasing airiness even though the colors are so rich. The mixture of single or semi-double blooms with thickly petaled roses creates energy. Much nicer than the exotic backdrops you posted. Necklace and drapery fit the arrangement, though I could do without them. A gold ribbon winner!

I can only repeat W - O - W !!!!!

I'll be too embarrassed to post my amateur photos for the next month.

(Don't worry--my ego will recover and I'll post anyway. LOL )

Marina, this bouquet is stunning! I love everything about it: the diverse roses that you have chosen, the subtle color combinations, the filler plants, and the vase.

Thank you so much for posting.
