Mom's Garden: Caravaggio

 I put this arrangement together and immediately thought of Caravaggio. His paintings full of light and dark, mysterious shadows and amazingly velvety textures. This arrangement was from mid/late summer, but somehow it seems more like a wintery mood. Don't you think?

 Flowers used:
Rose "Prospero"
Rose "French Lace"
Wild grape
Buddleja "Harlequin"
Gomphrena globosa "Fireworks"


Mom's Garden: Cabbage

I know what you're thinking. Cabbage in the summer?! Well, apparently, yes. This year, we got cabbage all the way into late summer. I love the velvety, iridescent dusty quality to this purple cabbage. At first it's silver. When you touch it, it turns purple. So cool.
