      My photo library needs pruning (almost literally as I have far too many rose pictures) so I’ve been going through my files deleting old pictures, and came across this one.

    White cannot be esteemed too highly for its drama. I have a modest moon garden behind my screened porch, and a thick patch of white impatiens under the crabapple in the front (the impatiens balance out the tree mildew nicely), and I love both. “Making a statement” was invented for white. The little blushes among your whites are so delicate a touch. More eloquence without words. Thank you.

      I’m fascinated by moon gardens. The blush shades in this are mainly carried by the buds – you don’t often see so many in an arrangement.

      I didn’t make it (I wish!). A very sweet, well-known event florist gave it to me after a photo shoot (I’m not naming him here as it isn’t presented to his standards). For the shoot it was a table centre in an elegant container, but it still looked pretty just balanced on a cushion later that evening in the plastic dish!

    I love roses, they grow in abundance here in the Charente Maritime in SW France, they come in all colours and all varieties, hot pinks, oranges, reds, climbers, shrubs, standards, but white roses are always my favourite. We have a shrub rose with thousands of tiny white roses, they grow in little climbs and continue to flower all summer long and the scent is heavenly too, I permanently have a vase on the kitchen table, they won’t be tamed, so they spill out on all sides, very casual and very elegant in my opinion!

      That sounds beautiful and idyllic. Spray flowered and rambler roses are wonderful for cutting especially if you have plenty of material. The designer of this arrangement told me he loves roses that spill and arch naturally, compared to the ones you usually see used for floristry with sturdy, stiff stems.
