Against black backdrops sat constructed worlds of color, texture and movement. The room was transformed. It was only two months ago that we were placing the flowers for a wedding here.
For Fullsteam’s weekly arrangement, I picked up fuschia and white anemones from Wild Scallions Farm. Their vibrant colors reminded me of the orchid show and the spurred, lipped flowers of linaria seemed to replay the orchid’s shapes. From my yard, I gathered mahonia flowers, honeysuckle vine, nandina and camellia branches, and the seed pod’s of culver’s root.
