Bloom 2019 – Shades of Pink

Another vase full of flowers and this time a punchy pink one. Just looking at this arrangement from a few weeks ago make me realise that there is still so much to explore in this hobby of mine.

Mood for example. I have concentrated on the shape of my arrangements, pushing that creative boundary without giving much thought to mood for these past few years. Mainly because I use what I have, what I grow. I don’t trot off to the florists and buy anything even when I see stunning arrangements on Instagram filled with romantic roses! (I think it’s time to buy rose bushes…..)

And to be honest I am always rather pleased with my arrangements especially this year where I feel at last I have a better understanding of the lopsided vaseful!

Anyway here is an almost lopsided one filled with the nameless pink dahlia, cosmos, malope, salvia, antirrhinum and a few touches of white with scabious and ammi. I also added in some sweet pea stems. And yes this is going back to when my fav vase was still in one piece!

I love having these insights and the opportunity to keep learning and growing…… oh dear bad pun!
