Lately, I have fallen in love with purple lilacs. However, I recently discovered white lilacs are just as pretty, especially when mixed with blue larkspur. I found these "faux" flowers and decided to make a small bouquet for my secretary. It is a pleasing mix, if I do say so myself! I love the fluffiness of the lilacs mixed with the spiky larkspur.
I have quite an affinity for purple, white and grey mixed together!
It just screams summer to me and is so feminine.
Since these are not real, they will last forever. This is the only way I can have them, too, since they are not native to my area.
You may recall that a beautiful purple orchid (that was real) graced the same spot here on my secretary. Unfortunately, it is not doing so well right now. Some of the flowers began falling off. I've been careful not to over water it (as many of you advised). I'm trying to save it, so in its place are these non-real flowers that I have better luck with! Ha!
Do you have a favorite flower combination?
Thanks for stopping by!
