A Beautiful Bridal Bouquet

When it comes to selecting  flowers for  wedding,  there is as much emphasis placed on preference and style as with any other aspect of the planning. From simple to elegant, from daisy to lilies, from monochromatic to a riot of colour, there's no wrong choice if it suits the theme and type of wedding. While your tastes might run to the informal, there's no question that the beautiful bouquet in this photo is an eye catcher.

Wishes for Spring

Despite today's frigid temperatures, the warming sun is working its magic on the icicles visible through my office's picture window. Rather than a static flower photo today, therefore, I've opted for something playful, in keeping with our hopes for spring and winter's struggle to hang on.

A Beautiful White Rose for Winter

As a native of the northern hemisphere, everywhere around me all I see is snow. Gardens full of blooming colours are a memory, fading away amid  monochromatic winter.  Yet, there is no discounting the purity of a world made white. Or for that matter the same absence of colour in a gorgeous flower. Today for Floral Friday we offer this picture of a single white rose.
