Arranging Acacia

Today I am sharing a short little flower vlog with the wildflower walks I’ve been taking for both foraging and just for observing as well. Acacia is abundant in the forests by the sea and so I’ve been enjoying arranging with the branches. Spring is definitely in the air now and I feel I am coming out of my winter hibernation and truly flowing into this season which I think is every floral designer’s favorite.

African daisy and turnip blossom

This is a refreshed arrangement that was originally made last week. The African daisy is going on a week and a half now! I originally procured the flowers from a landscaper who was removing shrubs. The sweet turnip flowers are from my little balcony garden. The arrangement also includes wax flower, geranium, wild fennel, dandelion, ranunculus buds, and wild grasses.

It’s so important to keep creating flower arrangements just for play, and just for yourself.🌸
