Florets - Floral Quote by Paula Pryke





"Colour is the most important element in any flower arrangement because it sets the mood of the display - the colour can be vibrant and arresting or calm and soothing. The technical skills involved in arranging flowers can be learned but I believe we are born with our own personal response to colour. The way we 'see' colour can be very different from the next person and what one person may consider to be bright and colourful, another may consider garish."

Ingrid, what is written here about individuals' varying responses to color/s is so true.

My response to your photo of the autumn flowers is that the colors are harmonious, but have just that sharp accent that sets the flowers music into action.

Really lovely.

And the woven rag mat keeps the foundation calm and steady.
