Seasonal Blooms

One of the wonderful things about what I do are the Seasons. They always change as flowers come into bloom and flowers finish blooming. And every Season has it’s bounty filled with color, texture and ooh la la. I love it.

Lilac color delphinium and hydrangeas mixed with burgundy dahlias and scabiosa with green rose hips and blue berries in a silver metal container.

I’m always grateful we have a pretty cool summer here in Berkeley. It does not stop us from enjoying all the warm climate Summer Annuals and Perennials. We still have a lot of lingering peonies through June and July, and combining them with clematis, garden roses and hydrangeas is a dream come true.

Fragrant garden lilies, foxtail lilies and giant purple alliums can create a tall, impressive arrangement for a wedding, mitzvah, or any entry to an event. And August brings out the dahlias, rudbeckias, more garden roses, Queen Anne’s lace, Lysimachia, gomphrena, zinnias and cosmos in white, pink, burgundy and chocolate brown with a scent of vanilla.

The flowers of Fall create a bold pallet of harvest tones that have matured as the season ends. You'll find deep shades of rose, burgundy, blues and purple hydrangea, dahlias galore in every color imaginable and roses just as lovely as the first flush of Spring, plus their hips begin to turn color.

You can’t have Fall without the last of the zinnias with their happy faces reaching up, and mixing them with privet berries and bitter sweet for a beautiful Fall flower arrangement. Fall is also the time for foliage; viburnum, pistachio, California natve Oak, abelia and crepe myrtle are all turning color.

Early liliac from Holland mixed with shades of lavender blush anemones, and muted shades of pale peonies and hydrangeas complete this beautiful Winter flower arrangement.

In the Bay Area we have two sides of Winter. There is the side we all expect, bare branches with little nodes of promise — pussy willows and hellebore for instance poking their heads up through the leaves toward the sun, always a Winter favorite.

The other side of Winter is a complete array of Spring blooming flowers. These flowers and bulbs were planted early, grown in greenhouses and forced into bloom to bring us cheer on the shortest of days.

Winter brings the bounty of Spring everytime I go to the flower market.

California grown lilac mixed with white peonies create a fabulous flower arrangement just in time for Spring.

Spring is everybody’s favorite season as it should be. We are so spoiled here, with a relatively tame Winter, Spring seems to come early. Plum and Quince blossoms are the first to arrive with a profusion of pink, coral and white petals everywhere.

Then Cherry branches, Peach branches, forsythia and Almond, followed by my favorite, Dogwood. But wait, I almost forgot the two stars of Spring, drum roll please...lilacs and peonies. They may not compare to the East Coast but they are always a welcome site.

A beautiful centerpiece just right for the table with peonies, roses, hellebore, blackberries and previt in a rectangular container.
