Wildflowers of California

I went on a hike a few days ago and picked up some wildflowers along the way. Would you expect anything less of me? Didn’t think so.

This white scabiosa is distinctively striking. Scabiosa, crocosmia and wild dill also complete the foraged bouquet with the scabiosa bulb part of the medley.

Then I played around with this Jonathan Adler vase, and tried several arrangements to see what looked best in the bud vase. The vase is really fun and was gifted to me (from this fabulous designer, whom I assisted on the floral arranging for her very own wedding back in June).

I pretty much decided I like each individual flower in the vase. In other words: It all works. But I figured this much.

In the end I decided to stick with the dill and crocosmia pairing (as seen below).
