White Poppy in my garden

This single white bloom popped up the other day. It may not be as lovely as my other poppies but I found the little brown specks on antique white petals charming. I am really fond of the center of poppies so intricate and beautiful.

Silk Poppy ,Hops and Feather Cascade Wedding Bouquet

I was recently married to the man of my dreams. I made the crazy decision to try to make everything, I mostly succeeded.  I made myself this bouquet after not finding anything vintage enough to go with my 1920-30s look. I never intended on the hops being part of it but  I couldn’t find any foliage I liked better so here it is; dusky purple Poppies, green and white hops, green ranunculus,  cream and green  love lies bleeding and cream feathers.  I covered the holder in a soft moss before adding the flowers so it looks fuller. I really loved how it turned out . My husband ( who is a big H.P Lovecraft fan) told me it looked Cthulhu-ey. while I no longer have my bouquet, I sent it up to be with my ailing aunt who couldn’t make it, it made me so happy, in fact i was informed by my husband that when I stepped out, he heard a gasp followed by “Oh my God look at the bouquet.”
