A Softer Side of Green
10 stems garden hellebores (Helleborus orientalis), grown by Jello Mold Farm
12 stems summer snowflake (Leucojum aestivum), harvested from my garden
1 stem curly willow (Salix matsudana ‘Tortuosa’), harvested by Oregon Coastal Flowers
9-inch tall x 6-inch wide, teardrop-shaped wall vase (4-inch diameter opening)
Just add white: There are some floral designers who abide by the “rule of white,” which calls for adding white flowers to every design. Take a look at this arrangement and you’ll notice that a few white blooms go a long way. The bell-shaped snowflakes are smaller than the plum-colored hellebores, but they add a lot of cheer to the design. Especially when viewed from a distance, white flowers are impactful, making any arrangement young and fresh-looking.
NOTE: Each Sunday of this year, I will post my photographs, “recipe” and tip for that week’s floral arrangement, created for my new book, Slow Flowers. Enjoy the floral journey through 52 weeks of the year~
