Oh Linda, your arrangements are always so lovely. I really love these combinations. Has Mark ever considered doing a project or book of them? How do your F Meleagris do in arrangements? I'm always afraid to cut them, thinking I'll shorten their life, but that's kind of silly as I'd see more of them if I brought some in.


You do the best floral arrangements! Perfect balance of shape and color. Excellent proportion. Enough flowers to entrance the eye and allow it to "see" the blossoms and the vessel, and not so many that they crowd each other out and overwhelm. Yes! Balance -- as in arrangements, as in life.

Each arrangement is outstanding, Linda! You're smart to bring them inside before the heat took them. I noticed a new bearded Iris bloom yesterday but, by that time the heat here (also in the 90F range) had already withered it - so disappointing!

KRIS — The heat has pushed things forward so fast that it is hard to actually see and enjoy what's happening in the garden before it's over.

KRISTIN — I've had good luck with the F. meleagris in a vase. And the rabbits get mine so quickly that I'de rather cut them and chance it.

Linda Brazill

ELIZABETH — Thanks for those kind words, especially as I found it hard to control things in such a tiny container. But it was fun to try to compliment the colors of the cups with the flowers.

Those are simply lovely arrangements!
