I think that dogwood blossoms far outshine cherry or the other blossom families. The size, the beautiful white flowers with their darling little detailed petals, make these exceptional specimen blooms that really can hold their own or solo in a vase.
An SOS has been received from Catherine urgently wanting advice on what other flowers she could put with her favourite, orange Waratahs. The design requested is to be tall and glow like orange, actually to reside on her brick fireplace mantel.
This is for those who asked for an arrangement that is NOT TOO much FALL and the many who have requested if I could share how to tame down the orange. I enjoy the changing of the colours from late summer into fall, but must admit, that full on fall can be a be dominating in a room.
