Tiny Blooms - # 36 - Blue and White Delphiniums


Delphinium is loved both by people growing it as a cottage garden flower - as well as by slugs - but we are not going to discuss slugs here today.....


This series of blog posts - called 'Tiny Blooms' - are about small flower arrangements. Small - might be the size of the container or it could be the size of the flowers or the amount of stems. 

It can also be that the arrangement is minimal both in presentation and that it's simple, quick and easy to do. Apart from that there are no other strict rules - I'm allowing myself a lot of creative freedom!



A bunch of delphiniums goes a long way - I only have five stems here and I simply put them in a tall clear glass vase with straight sides. 

A row of glass bottles with just a single stem in each bottle would also look fantastic along a windowsill or mantlepiece. 


These tall almost regal flowers are also soft and romantic. The flowers open from the bottom so pick stems that have open blossoms only halfway up for the longest bloom time.

You don't need to do much to delphiniums - their loose, country-garden style is very much suited to make simple quick and easy arrangements.


Enjoy your flower arranging and have a fabulous and floral Monday!

Thank you for visiting 'Of Spring and Summer' - I will be back later in the week with some more floral delights.

Let us definitely not think of slugs when viewing these beautiful pictures. The very first photograph is my favorite! xo
