Both macro lens and raw images are growing on me. So are these mauve and purple flowers.
I recently heard another florist say that she likes to take her cue for the colors in her bouquet from the colors found in one flower. I thought it pretty neat that this particular mix has echoing colors all over the place. And no, it wasn't a well organized planting orchestration. I have no idea where the iris came from. The verbascum we picked up at random on a nursery run last year, the peony is a first year volunteer, and the sundrops are finally blooming after two or three years of indecision.
The beauty (and excitement) of seasonal flowers is that you never know what combination you'll be able to pull together.
