A Bunch for the Weekend - # 8 - Pink Delphiniums



A Bunch for the Weekend - this week is all pink. Well, to be exact it's three stems of pink Delphiniums and two stems of green Delphinium buds.

Delphiniums are made up of tall, narrow spikes - so you need a tall vase. I have used an old sake bottle - turned out to be the perfect container. It worked well as it was tall enough and everything looked in proportion.

It's a flower that starts flowering from the bottom of the spike while the top still has tight buds. You will need to remove the lower spent flowers as the buds open up. 


Have a Fun and Floral Friday!

See you on Sunday for another floral quote from a flower lover!

Ingrid, you've found a simply elegrant way to showcase beautiful delphiniums.

This afternoon, I visited the Union Square farmers market and saw so many lovely flowers. Almost sure that I saw some delphiniums in a paler pink than yours.

With a strong breeze, sunny blue sky quickly changed to a steady shower, and so I quickly bought some beautifully freshly cut asparagus, and did not linger too long looking a flowers.

Those fresh asparagus have now been a delicious part of tonight's pasta composition.
