The peonies bloom in early June in southern Wisconsin but are here for only a short time. Pink peonies plus hosta leaves, Solomon seal leaves and snow on the mountain blooms combine to make this garden arrangement.
The centerpieces for this June wedding shower were arranged in gold painted cans of various sizes. The request from the bridal party was to arrange the flowers in the containers as if they had just been picked from the garden. Yellow, blue and cream were the dominant colors. We used spider mums, snapdragons, thistle and Queen Anne’s lace complemented by chamomile daisies and billy balls (craspedia).
