Ranunculus

Aaahhh, spring…when it has sprung, these delightful blooms are singing right alongside the sweet songbirds whose music fills the air with happiness.  Ranunculus are a local favorite here in San Diego.  We are blessed every spring to see them growing just east of the I-5 freeway at the Carlsbad Flower Fields…a hillside rainbow of cheery colors such as plummy-violet, red, hot pink, bubble gum pink, coral-orange, peach, yellow and white.  There are also novelty varieties that have bi-coloration, very yummy!  Riddled with ruffles, the petals of ranunculus create a very feminine look when added to hand tied wedding bouquets.  I prefer theses little darlings to be the focus with little other floral textues present, and, go figure…a la mode d’ Adrianne,  in a rustic container.

lemon yellow & school bus yellow ranunculus teamed up with crespedia (aka "Billy Balls") and scented geranium.
