The flower biz is keeping me busy with people knocking on the door for sweet peas and bouquets as I try to get my bulb order in (hello, Canada Food Inspection Agency!), and tonight I'll be hosting the second garden event in the past month. A busy season of grad parties and green parties! Not complaining but little time to do more than Instagram all the gorgeous blooms. Here's a floral colour wheel from late June in celebration of marriage equality in the USA.
The blossoms are (starting with green): Alchemilla, Bupleurum, Erygium agavifolium; (yellow) Hypericum, dandelion, Cephalaria gigantea; (orange) Alstromeria, Helenium, Emilia; (red) Astilbe, Begonia, Geranium, Papaver (plum) Astilbe, Nicotiana, Lathyrus 'Burnished Bronze'; (purple/blue) Lathyrus 'Navy', Camapanula, Borage, Erygium zabelii 'Big Blue'.
