summery bouquet

I like it best when people order bouquets and leave the choice of flowers to me - that way I can choose what is looking its very best and also I get to use all the flowers that people wouldn't think of asking for as they are not often seen in flower shops.
This bouquet is for a birthday and the instructions were simply to make it summery. I am very pleased with it - the base foliage is Eupatorium purpurecens, an American plant also known as Jo Pye Weed mixed with applemint in flower, and the flowers are red/purple alstromerias, marigolds, annual chrysanthemums and pale orange crocosmia. It is a happy, sunny bouquet with a bit of depth!
