The professor really outdid himself yesterday for our anniversary. If I were to be married now, I probably would have picked at least some of these blooms for my bouquet. Click on the picture to see them up close..how fresh, how perfect. Even the ribbon mirrors the colour of my dress.
My actual bouquet was nothing like what I had wanted or envisaged. At the time I was looking through American magazines and wanted a purple clematis cascade like I had seen portrayed. Fine's Florist in Ottawa, which was the most progressive in town 40 years ago, had never heard of such a thing, so they were left with the final decision and came up with bachelor's buttons!!! These days we are so lucky to be able to access any florals anytime of the year. I particularly like the combination that Larry chose...he should have been in charge of the flowers then I guess.
The purple Lysianthus is one of my favourite flowers, the agapanthus adds a lovely texture, the hydrangea is the perfect colour for my dress, and the delphinium are such an August bloom. Add a few daisies for contrast, and here comes the bride!
