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