Tomorrow is the first day of Autumn. For city dwellers, the first signs of the season are surely colors of trees and, if you love flowers, you may have noticed the new arrivals at florists’. At this time of year, the flowers most used for bouquets are chrysanthemum, dahlia, glad, berries, etc.
For my homework of the Florist’s course (at Natura-Dis school in France), I have to make 3 floral arrangements in 3 different vases with the same flowers. I have chosen Celosia as the star flower in these bouquets. The Celosia is also called “cocks comb” referring to its form and color.
I had made first 2 bouquets with a rectangular and a cube vase. The 3rd one withe the bowl was arranged one week later with the flowers recycled from the cube vase.
Flowers in theses bouquets:
– Celosia: Cocks comb/Célosie, crête de coq/鸡冠花
– Hypericum: St. John’s wort / Millepertuis / 金丝桃
– Ligustrum: Privet berries / Baies de Troène / 女贞树果
