Sharing Yan’s passion for flowers

My flower book (18): black and white January 26, 2010

Though we are still in cold winter, spring flowers can already be found everywhere at florists’. I think flowers are as import for our spirits as for aesthetic reasons.

  

I arranged a bouquet last week with just a few branches of Prunus in the black narrow glass vase of Villeroy & Bosh I talked about in a previous post. This week, in order to use the branches in another way, I’ve chosen 3 black arums and 3 white Agapanthus (Lily of the Nile) to arrange a black-and-white bouquet in a Ikea pitcher.

 

 

Flowers used in this bouquet:

 

Calla: Calla lily/ Arum/ 马蹄莲

Agapanthus: Lily of the Nile/ Agapanthus/ 百子莲

Prunus

Aspidistra (leaf): Aspidistra/ Langue-de-belle-mère / 蜘蛛抱蛋, 一叶兰, 箬叶
