Roses, clematis, nigella, veronica and hypericum berries in shades of pink, blue and purple look wonderful combined with creamy lisianthus buds, natural wood and lichens. Lest anyone should think I have the talent to have done this, I’ll make it clear that it’s a detail from a floral design by Eleanor Griffiths that I admired at last year’s Southport Flower Show.
It was one of several chair installations as the name ‘Sitting Pretty’ implies. Sadly I don’t have a picture of the whole design to show you, just a slightly wider shot showing more of the textures of the wood and the weave. My justification is that being let loose in a Floral Art Marquee always gets me a little over excited.
