Since I won’t have fresh-cut garden flowers until late April or May, it’s time to assemble an imaginary bouquet.
1. I’ll start with line flowers and branches, which add height and width to the arrangement. Lupines and a few sprigs of Flowering Almond should do the trick.
2. Next, I’ll add the mass flowers—the focal points of the bouquet. Irises, Peonies, and a few dangles of Bleeding Heart will serve this purpose.
3. Finally, I’ll add filler flowers to fill in the spaces. I think I have some imaginary fresh Lilacs and Mock Orange on hand.
It’s an impressive bouquet in my mind, but I can't really see it. So, maybe I’ll head over to Pat’s Web Graphics to make myself a virtual bouquet. It’s still not the real thing, but it’s a fun way to pass a little time on a cold February evening.
