Came to the shop early this morning to re-work my Bride's bouquet. On the drive in I was thinking how to loosening it up a bit and did a quick mental inventory of the cold chest.
I'd completely forgotten yesterday about the scented geranium and the passion flower vine. I like some of the flowers clustered, but I love a sense of movement - even a quiver or two, often achieved with grasses and seeded eucalyptus.
I took it apart and created a looser base with the passion vine and more eucalyptus. I discarded the purple hydrangea: I rely too much on hydrangea as an anchoring device.
I do prefer the re-do. Lindsey, the Bride, loved it.
This next photo is really awful, but it shows the passion vine and better demonstrates the breadth of the bouquet. Can anyone tell me why my distance shots come out blurry? Am I moving? How do I not do that? Also, I'm clearly still working on 'light' issues.
I'm going out to Lunenburg tomorrow to check out country life there and maybe spy a few donkeys!
