I have another bouquet for you

the_dark_lady(z7 Amelia VA)October 4, 2009

In today's arrangement I used:

1. Graham Thomas

2. Caramel Antike

3. Pat Austin

4. St.Alban

5. Windermere

6. Snow Waltz

7. Crown Princess Margareta

8. Comte de Champagne

As fillers I used:

1. Caryopteris

2. Salvia

3. Darmera leaves

4. Nippon Chrysanthemum

I have a problem with background - I don't have enough light inside, so I had to use same brick wall again and our stone fireplace.

Wowwwwww and spectacular!

Absolutely breathtaking. My favorite backdrop is the fireplace! but all! look fantastic. Actually just as you say, lighting is soooooo ideal for bouquets when it's outside, compared to indoors. Sunlight really helps bring out the colors and makes them pop, so I always tell people to bring out their bouquets outside instead! But that indoors fireplace has the perfect indoor lighting from the windows and your skill to get just the perfect lighting balance. So fire-(place) away those amazing bouquets, LOL!

All this time I thought Nippon Chrysanthemum was a Daisy that flowers in fall. I can no way express the joy I have just seeing the pic and getting the names of other flowering items. Your vases just amaze us both I enjoy every jaw droping pic from you.

Wow, I am in Heaven!!! Thank you for the compliments.

Wesley Butterflies, yes the other name for Nippon Chrysanthemum (actually it is Nipponicum) is Nippon Daisy or Montauk Daisy.

Absolutely beautiful - a true work of art! I love blues/purples with yellows/oranges - it just makes the colors "pop". And I really like the fireplace as a the background, yours is a little bit lighter colored than mine but you have inspired me to try mine as a background to see what I get. Thank you so much for sharing!
