February 13th, 2013

“A Blue Bowl of Blooms”

Two completely different flowers – vivacious tulips and intricate witch hazels.

Two completely different flowers – vivacious tulips and intricate witch hazels.

Ingredients:
2 dozen mixed spring tulips, grown by Alm Hill Gardens
7 branches witch hazel (Hamamelis x intermedia ‘Jelena’), harvested from my garden

Vase:  5-inch tall x 9-inch wide cobalt blue vintage bowl with 6½-inch opening

From the Farmer
Direct from the source: When you shop for flowers at the farmers’ market, be sure to ask questions about where and how the flowers you purchase were raised. There is nothing better than meeting the farmer who actually grew your bouquet. You never know when that connection will lead to an invitation to visit a local flower farm!
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~
