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.

Craspedia, commonly known as Billy Balls, are a whimsical touch to rustic garden style wedding bouquets as well as for modern inspired events. Billy Balls come only in sunshine yellow. They dry well and are available for spring and summer arrangements.
