Tiny Blooms - # 43 - Orange Tulips and Geum



This week on 'Tiny Blooms' I'm featuring mainly orange - orange double tulips, lily-flowering orange tulips and orange Geums - a little orange daisy like flower. They are all British grown!


Here is a little "statement" that I add - to briefly explaining my thinking behind these particular posts:

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

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!"


Double tulips are often spectacular - and often multicoloured like this one with all it's beautiful colours from orange to green to pink and yellow. 

This one is called 'Orange Princess' - what a great name!

I have mixed them with an orange Geum called 'Queen of Orange'.  


Lily-flowering tulips are some of the most elegant - here is one called 'Ballerina' - another great name.

Just putting two or three stems in a vintage glass bottle is very effective and looks very stylish. It's also very quick and easy......!!


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

Thank you for visiting 'Of Spring and Summer' - I look forward to seeing later in the week - when I'll be back with more floral delights.
