Blooms of the Week – Lu Diamond


Yellow makes people smile! I think it reminds them of sunshine and happiness, but strangely it’s a colour I never usually consider when selecting my flowers… For whatever reason, this week I threw out my misgivings towards the yellow and created this lovely big golden handful of sunshine.

The Lightning roses and the bushy solidago are both grown at Van Liers here in Auckland. In the beautiful heat we’ve been experiencing it only took two days for theses roses to open fully. They really are stunning nestled in with the textural solidago.

I can imagine this bouquet being held by a gorgeous modern bride wearing a simple yet elegant fitted gown, with her hair loose and relaxed – just like the bouquet.
