whiteflowers whiteflowers2 whiteflowers3 yesterday, i caved and bought flowers from the flower shop. i told myself that this summer i would only bring home flowers from farm stands. but yesterday was so hot and the apartment was so dark midday that it needing some cheering.

i repeated the name of the flower the whole way home so i could share it with you. but this morning, somehow, it escapes me entirely. so here they are, white flowers, without a name.

    I bought the same for my hall.

    It makes such a difference seeing flowers the moment you come into the home.

    I love lisianthus! they're a little unruly – that's my favourite part!

    I love them too–I've seen them in a glorious shade of soft pink. Your white is cool and lovely and they have a bit of the look of wildflowers.

    yes, lovely–these were in katie l's wedding centerpieces, and two weeks and half weeks later, i still have some unfolding–even the closed buds are pretty and poignant

    my mother is a florist and I always ask her the name of the flowers, why are they so hard to remember? I'm glad your fans commented or I was going to give her a call for my own peace of mind šŸ™‚
    Lovely photos, pretty flowers with dark wood and those scissors, I love those scissors!

    Just remember Lizzie! Lizzie-anthus. Helps, right?

    I had lizzies in my wedding bouquet (along with scabiosa, peonies, scented geranium, lavender, bachelor's buttons, old-fashioned english roses, larkspur and queen anne's lace). I get all full of happy sighs just looking at them in your photos. Enjoy! xo
