SLOW FLOWERS: Week 17
April 28th, 2013
12 stems fuchsia anemones (Anemone coronaria ‘Galilee Pink), grown by Everyday Flowers
8 stems pearl bush (Exochorda x macrantha), grown by J. Foss Garden Flowers
6 stems bachelor’s buttons (Centaurea cyanus), harvested from my garden
7 stems white tulips, grown by Alm Hill Gardens
8-inch tall x 6-inch diameter round vase with 5-inch opening
Color wheel lesson: The flowers and vase combination illustrate an analogous color palette. Analogous colors are adjacent to one another on the color wheel. Fuchsia, purple and indigo are pleasing when viewed together because they each share varying quantities of the primary color blue. White floral accents offset the black centers of the anemones, adding a graphic punch to this composition.
