New Blooms in the Garden

In the garden, the flowers are always changing. My beautiful larkspur has given its spot up to celosia, (the flowers will be coming soon) and Purple coneflowers (echinacea) are showing up in my garden borders. The bold flowers have bright orange disks and soft pink or magenta petals. Foxglove continues to offer me shorter floral spires of lavender, yellow and raspberry pink. Round globes of pink and purple gomphrena are starting to pop out- they should be around for the rest of the summer and into the fall.
It was such a treat to bring these flowers together in the above centerpiece designs for Emily's bridal shower the other week. They paired well with the last of the larkspur, peach colored yarrow, Neon dianthus and Babe orange spray roses. The navy blue ribbon bands sported fresh pink gomphrena buttons.
Praying God's blessing for Richard and Emily as they will soon join their lives together as husband and wife!
