Years ago I would look at faux flowers with such disdain.........."I am a purist", I would declare. Time softens, particularly when time is of such essence. But additionally the quality of faux's has vastly improved and one of my favorite uses is outdoors in the Spring.
So, what do you think of the example above? A classic Parrot tulip.....look closely......see the pollen on the stamen? That's good!
See where I am headed?
My clients side entrance needed some drama. The peachy tulips lend height and staying power with the white pansies which enhances the trim color.
Drama, pure drama! The old adage "thriller", "filler" and "spiller" is difficult to attain with the mostly short flowers of spring and bulbs are so fleeting.
Next post...........an art giveaway, and........you get to choose!
Happy Spring days........
