The other day when I was at Bi-Rite Market I found this lovely selection of local farm flowers that all reminded me of spring. From the paperwhite narcissus to the scabiosa, rose, garlic flowers, and poppies, this arrangement really belongs to spring. But, since they were available, I saw nothing holding me back from using them all in one lovely arrangement.
Flowers: narcissus, scabiosa, poppy, ranunculus, garden rose, garlic flower, kumquat
Begin with the kumquat. Just grab a bunch, trim, and place in a bunch on one side of the vase.
Follow the same concept with the narcissus - they are so pretty in a bunch. Add the to the opposite side of the vase.
Place the garden roses and one ranunculus in between the narcissus and kumquats.
Add the taller bunch of the garlic flowers to the side of the arrangement - these are so pretty in a bunch as well.
Begin dispersing the scabiosa throughout the vase in a haphazard way - their beauty lies in their tall and skinny stems being displayed and their flowers sitting freely within the vase.
Add some additional taller ranunculus as well as another smaller and shorter bunch of the garlic flowers to the arrangement.
Finally, add the poppies. Their beauty in an arrangement is much like that of the scabies - they are beautiful when looking a bit haphazard.
