This little 5-inch bucket of blooms was left at my house after our last flowernotes photo shoot.
We needed an interesting combination of garden snippets for our Blushing Copper story on page 86, before we could send flowernotes off to the publisher.
Susan contributed a Cafe au Lait dahlia, some of her prize 'Zinderella Lilac' zinnias,
and heavenly strands of love-in-a-puff vine.
Perle d'Or and a couple other roses, along with my favorite pink dahlia, came from my garden.
And here's Lady Roberts, the beautiful Tea.
The light had changed from the cool morning shot shown in flowernotes and I was captivated not only by the warmer light but also moved by the collaboration that Susan and I experienced creating flowernotes. This little bucket held gratitude and an otherworldly beauty to me. Photographing these images was such a joy.
The sweet single rose with the pink stamens is Poulsen's Pearl.
Atmosphere, that whimsical artist, transforms the already brilliant world by clothing in tints other than their own.
