In a vase on Monday – cheating!

IMG_4493

So, my vase wasn’t created by me, nor are the flowers from my garden, but it’s a stunning arrangement which I enjoyed at Hinton Ampner, when I visited on Friday.  

The flowers were all from their garden and I just love the scale and exuberance of the display.  Perhaps one day I’ll graduate beyond posies!

With thanks to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for hosting all our vases.

    Haha – this will have given you and all the other visitors to Hinton Ampner a great deal of pleasure, and the flowers have come from the garden there, so no cheating involved! As others have said, it’s good to have the chance to study ‘professional’ arrangements – and overall I don’t think we are doing badly. We certainly have the enthusiasm! ps I too feel more confident with smaller scale posies, not that I have had much in the way of taller stems available anyway 🙂 Thanks for sharing this today.

    Its lovely to see what can be done with ample manpower!! I love seeing large scale arrangements like this, but prefer to make simple posies myself. I think this was an excellent choice for a Monday vase.

    That’s spectacular! I’ve never created one that large before, but I’ve always dreamed of doing so. I don’t think it’s cheating. We all appreciate sharing ideas for arrangements–both professional and homemade. This one is gorgeous!
