Roses figure prominently in many of my bouquets, centerpieces, altar railings and topiaries. Knowing which roses to select - and how to intensify an appreciation of them - is an art in and of itself.
In one instance I added green hypericum berries and fiddleheads for a bracing, contemporary take on a traditional arrangement. In another instance, I veered off my rose theme – who in her right mind could pass up on these coral-colored peonies?
They look stunning in tall glass containers. These creations were auctioned off after the demonstration and went home with a number of happy garden club members.
Many thanks to Carrie Pin for photographing some of the day’s creations.
