Floral Friday

IMG_5408


An arrangement for Floral Friday was the challenge for me today, restricted to using only materials that I was able to find on my terrace.  At first I was frustrated, due to lack of flowers and foliage but find creativity comes easier to me when faced with limited resources.  I started filling my teal colored Chinese pot with Salvia officinalis (sage), then some large headed Tagetes (from seed collected at Gravetye Manor), orange and peachy Zinnias and then I felt I had something but wasn’t finished yet. Layering more colors in with Artemisia foliage, a few small soft pinkish Dahlia blooms (unknown cultivar from DeWiersse), some Jasmine foliage and then filled out the rest with the sun faded blooms of Allium sphaerocephalon. Challenge met and pleased. – James
