Flowers for Memorial

Hi everyone, I am sorry to be gone so long but I am not a multi-tasker and can only handle a couple of things at once. So having more than that to do I had to let the blogging slide for a while. I hope I haven't lost you all. I have here to share with you some flower arrangements I made for the Memorial that my religious group celebrate once a year. It was such an honor to be asked to do the arrangements as I have no formal training.






This one shows the different flowers I used stock, roses, babys breath, larkspur, snapdragons, gladiolas, and some I don't know how to spell.


Sorry this one got in here twice but this is a better look at that lovely metal pot.




As it turns out this was an all time favorite with the women. They loved the ceramic pot with the roses on it. The arrangement was about 3 times as high as the pot and gave it a tall overstated look for the size of the pot.






I love the Lilly's and this is a close up of one in the larger bouquet.





This close-up of the roses really shows it's true color it was just this wonderful shade of pinkie lavender. Oh yes, the stock and the Lillie's made these arrangements smell heavenly.
These flowers are getting double duty as they are now at the celebration of my dear friends 50th wedding anniversary, I tease her and tell her she must have been just 2 when she got married.
Well take care hope to see you all soon. TTFN

Hi Wanda,
I finally got some time this morning to check out one of my "favs" in blogland and caught your post of "memorial flowers" just as it came on. Sorry I missed the drawing deadline, I too was preparing for memorial. The flower arrangements are especially beautiful....in the words of my 15 month old g-daughter, "good girl".
Must be off to work, will be back later. Perhaps see you at Queen of tarte on Sat?

Ooohh! Pretty. Makes me wish I could arrange flowers. Of course, we only have daffodils this time of year. Can't wait for my roses to bloom--you've inspired me to try to do something with them this summer.
