Wow, what a burst of colors! Hard to choose between the smaller and the bigger flower arrangement:)

Beautiful colors - a feast for the eyes.

Oh, you are so GOOD! I just love your flowers. SO much. So, so much.

Dear jeannette stgermain,
I intended these two arrangements to be a grouping to be displayed together. I wish I put the two hyacinths of the smaller piece on the other side. It would have looked nicer as a miniature mirror image.

Dear Kala,
Thank you; I'm glad you like them.

Dear Relyn,
Thanks. Really the flowers are doing all the heavy lifting here. Pretty hard to go wrong when you start with great materials.

Dear Marilyn,
Me too, spring flowers are the best! Until it's fall, then autumn colors are the best, or winter...
you get the idea.

Dear Susan,
Happy to have made the delivery!

Dear marieandkath,
Thanks! It was actually an order for a birthday and thank you.

Oh! I saw this when it popped up on Google Reader and oohed and ahed. Now I'm here to tell you, the plum blossom branches add that Dutchbaby touch that make these SING.

I hope we get plum blossoms this spring on the wedding plum, planted August 1. :)

Dear Ruth,
How wonderful that you have a tree to remember your daughter's beautiful wedding. I hope you get beautiful blossoms and delicious plums this year. Do you have another plum tree for cross-pollination?

And excellent combination. Is there anything more lovely than a parrot tulip with it's ruffly edges? I've only had the great pleasure to see them once.
Have a great night Dutchbaby~

Dear Constance,
Parrot tulips are the best! If you come back to SF, you'll see lots of them at the flower mart...
