Strolled past Penhaligon’s an old English perfumery and noticed a simple arrangement of stock in the window.
Some people don’t like stock as a flower primarily because of its scent. Secondly it is often used as filler in “grab and go” flower bouquets so it gets a bad rap. I happen to really like it all on its own, preferably used in mass. The pale yellow color looks great when paired with the white. Imagine 4 bunches of each color fashioned into a low cylinder…fabulous, though fabulously fragrant.
And on a table near the doorway they had a vase with would you believe, Carnations…and not even cut short.
I noticed a tall arrangement in the window of a restaurant near the Hayward gallery. This was one of 2, the other arrangement was in the front window. Filled with pink hydrangea, un-bloomed lilies and tropical foliage.
Here is Allium (part of the onion family) used in a window display of a store I forgot to take note of. Possibly a clothing store.
Walking down King’s road in Chelsea I must have been the only one gawking at a huge billboard hung high above.
