Alstroemeria bouquet

A friend gave me a magnificent bouquet of Peruvian lilies, or alstroemeria. Each flower was at least 2″ or even 3″ wide (5-8 cm). I’ve never seen such an array of rainbow colors in this flower. See a close up in this post below.

Almost perfect cut flower (sadly no fragrance), Peruvian lilies make such a fine bouquet

Variegated pink weigela

I love this shrub, pronounced “why-GHEEL-a.” Not only is the foliage extremely nice and accepts pruning well, but it has these super pretty pink flowers as well!

Happy Mother’s Day! Let’s focus on one of the many things that unite us—a woman gave birth to each and every one of us. Thanks, Mom!

Wedding flowers

I was at the Volunteer Park Conservatory in Seattle when a wedding was winding up. The florist did a fine, fine job!

So many kinds of lovely flowers in this wedding arrangement.

Orchid bouquet

You don’t often see a bouquet of orchids. That was a very fine year for bouquets at the NW Flower & Garden Show in 2012.

Red calla lilies and yellow ball flowers

One of my favorite images from the NW Flower & Garden Show (#NWFGS) is this bouquet of deep red and yellow callas, with some kind of ball flower inserted into each one. Over a cloud of pale green hydrangeas, naturally.

This just in! These ball flowers are Craspedia (Drumstick Flower)! You can buy seeds!
