A bouquet for Joanne's Tea Ceremony earlier in July...
At this point, the bouquet wasn't 'finished'.
Often I take a few quick photo's like this as I go along. Somehow, I can spot improvements more easily from a photo than I can just looking at the flowers in front of me. (Yes, I know it probably sounds daft but it works for me!)
So, I tidied up some of the random bits poking out along the top, lifted a few stems to raise them higher & added some extra coral Sweet Peas along the front edge.
And of course, as the last step I added ribbons of Joanne's choice.
Every single stem grown here in Galloway by myself, cut from the flower field & carried to the workshop to be arranged. The bouquet includes Garden Roses, Honeysuckle, Sweet Peas, Phlox, Marjoram, Scabious, Rudbeckia & more for a real 'gathered from the garden' look.
