While working in the garden yesterday, I had to remove some Angelica archangelica, a large hardy biennial that can reach up to 8 feet ( 2.5 metres) tall in height. Its height, the thickness of its stems, and the blooms are all strong characteristics of this plant. After removing a few flowering stems, I took them home and threw this together. If you find making arrangements intimidating then keep it simple. Take a cue from Karl Blossfeldt by focusing on one detail of a plant, and then simply repeat it by arranging in a group of similar vessels.
