    I agree that e bouquets are the same ones- looks like a Flora Grubb beauty to me. I love this plant- it grows like a weed in my garden, it is pretty from green bud to seed pod, and the color and form varies after re-seeding itself over the years.

    I love the Fleurs bouquet – the colors, the composition, the Dahlia in the middle. Absolutely gorgeous!

    Just planted it in my garden today! Fun to see these photos…

    I love the wrist corsage with the dusty miller. Black scabosia is my favorite of the scabosias. Thanks for the pictures.

    Definitely the same bouquet, and definitely a lovely creation by The Cutting Garden.

    Definitely one of my favorites! Prolific in the garden and a color that is hard to get.
    Thanks for a little floral beauty with my morning coffee.
