Summertime Experienced Indoors

Perusing the flower stand at the farmer's market yesterday, the weather was just too perfect to confine myself to just one handful of blooms.  The Delphinium I knew would open its winged buds throughout the week, but the sunny Coreopsis with their chocolate-stained faces could not be left behind either.  They weren't exactly compatible for a bouquet because their size and airiness seemed too similar to provide contrast, but I plotted my plan of attack on the walk home.  As I approached the house I giggled as I stumbled on the obvious solution.  Silly me!  I had forgotten about the flower stand in my own front garden!  A few pink Clarkias and it suddenly came together as a wild, Summertime prairie bouquet.     


  1. That's the first time I've seen Clarkia used in a bouquet. The whole arrangement looks fabulous!
