This beautiful new canvas cries out for a design, and so for it I have designed One Last Topiary. This topiary is designed around the hot colors and the showy flowers of the late summertime, when all is in full flower and final ripening. They remind us of the summers of Europe or California. Golden peaches nestle near the center of the design, surrounded by brilliant sunflowers and wispy poppies. Other flowers include trailing verbena, ubiquitous impatiens, spiky butterfly bush, and feathery astilbe.
The arrangement is presented in a pot fashioned after those of the native Americans. The earthen red/orange is the perfect foil for this joyous design.
Threads include Soie d’Alger, Kreinik braids, assorted beads.
