Fabulous; it’s Friday!

 Black and bohemian, dark, sultry and the stuff of fairy tales; Queen of the Night and parrot Tulips add a deep, dusky depth to any border or hand-tied posy. Add a touch of chartreuse, some smokey mauve and you have a moody confection fit for Vanessa Bell or Virginia Woolf.

Go on, walk on the wild side and add some twilight to your planting and watch your garden become avant- garde and groovy in one easy step!

  1. I love that combination of dark and bright and try to get it in the garden in a variety of ways! The chartreuse accents just add so much, I think! They glow. Beautiful photo, Karen, as always!

    • Thank you Kerry, you always comment and that means so much. I try in the garden too, but these tulips were grown in pots, close to the house. It is much easier to create “dark and bright” in a posy than it is in the garden. But like you, I keep trying!

  2. A work of art in your presentation of this arrangement. I gave my granddaughter a pack of wild seeds she scattered, I’m now looking forward to her bouquet in a month or two.

  3. Me too! I have black Cornflowers, Poppies and Viola coming on in the garden and shots of green too in Nicotiana, etc. So glad you like them Gretchen.
