fleurs de la semaine

wild gladioli

three bouquet sizes and styles this week
modern or traditional
slender or plump

gentle green wild gladioli, with thier intoxicating perfume that reminds me of ylang ylang, are spiraling out of a slim white acid etched vase made by local ceramicist lisa boyter
strong structural spikes of white early poplar leaves give additional height
while the feathery favourite of bronze fennel break the austerness of the arrangement

our second arrangement is all tasmanian wild flowers
golden lilies, riceflower, pultanea with a dash of swamp gum for form

native riceflower and golden lily

and last but not least our regular coffee cup posies!
this week we have a flush of bluebells on the farm, sprigged with the last of the seasons wild riceflower, sparaxis and trimmed with either catnip and burnet or a fluffy bronze fennel

coffee cup posies - loads of bluebells !
