Sharing Yan’s passion for flowers

My Flower Book (31): Peony March 6, 2011


Peonies are already available at florists’. Although knowing they are greenhouse cultured, I can’t resist to their charm. further more, the ones I  bought yesterday smelled so good, just like garden ones. And I found Mooseberry (Viburnum) flowers to match them, how resist ?


Moosberry or Cranberry (Viburnum) is one of my favorite foliages. Between a flower and leaves, it has the most perfect pastel color and the most delicate posture to match pastel colored spring flowers.

My Flower book (30): tulips in Gien vase

A bouquet of Tulips can always cheer up an interior.

I arranged this bouquet of tulips in a Gien Vase of the collection “Mille Fleurs”, one of the most famous “demi-lune” vases that I purchased in Gien, the factory of store of the faience brand.

I have acquired a new vase of Alessi, the famous Italian design brand.

The metal structure contains 2 plastic tubes (and I have added one more) where one can put only few flower stems.

I like this simple and modern design.

 

 

My vases (2) February 3, 2010

I found this second-hand made-in-England Chinese style vase at a “Brocante” (A kind of French shops where the “patron” accepts and sells goods on behalf of vendors. The parton charges a commission based on the selling price. The goods are normally things such as old furniture / ornaments / bric-a-brac.)

Whoever loves the floral art must love the vases too. I am always looking for beautiful vases wherever I go.

This week-end I have found three vases of different styles.
