A bouquet of Clematis and Aquilegia

clematis_aquilegia

Hello everyone!
Just a short post to show you my bouquet today from the #onebouquetperday series while I am in France. Today I decided to make a bouquet with some clematis and a couple of aquilegia in the same shade of pink. I hope you will like them. They don’t last very long in a vase, but I still like them very much.
See you tomorrow for the next flowers from my parents garden. I might show you some more Pierre de Ronsard roses before the end of the week as they are just gorgeous at the moment.
Have a great day!
Elodie

A little garden in France

pansies in the garden

Hello everyone,
on my way to the Joyeuse Clique Workhop at the beginning of April with parents, we stopped at my Mum’s best friend house in a little village in Burgundy and I wanted to share some pictures of her lovely garden with you. It was the beginning of April and the garden was full of pansies and little daisies planted in very pretty pots and Medicis vases. 
I wish you a great day!
Speak to you soon,
Elodie

Some dahlias for baby love

Hello everyone,

When I saw these gorgeous dahlias at the market yesterday, I couldn’t resist! I decided to be crazy and spend € 2.50 even if I could go to the hospital any moment now, as I am already 8 days overdue.
I think the shades of pink, red and purple are just beautiful. They make me look forward to the autumn and its fantastic range of warm colours.
I also wanted to use my new mini-medicis vase I found last week. So here are a couple of photos for you and for my baby love. Maybe she will want to come out if she already feels the beauty of flowers.
Have a nice day and talk to you soon!
Elodie

2flowergirls #5 – peonies

Hello dear readers,
Today is the big day for the start of #2flowergirls in June with madame love and glomerylane.
The flower of the month is the peony and I am very much looking forward to seeing your creations and see which variety you found. There are more the 200 varieties of peonies, from white to purple, from yellow to light pink.
Peonies are called pivoines in French and Pfingstrosen in German (Pentecost) as they usually bloom at that time of year and are many people’s favorite flowers. No wonder, they just look gorgeous in the garden, in an exuberant bouquet and are a classic for weddings. So let’s the peonie’s explosion start!
Please post a link to your blogpost in the comment field underneath or on Inga’s blog and we will post your photos on our peony pinterest board. For those who don’t have a blog or don’t want to blog about it, you can just post a picture on Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #2flowergirls or send us your peonies per email.

I hope you will like my pictures. I tried to show the variety as much as possible and found 6 different ones from 3 different flower shops yesterday, and displayed them in single vases.
