pretty little things – how can you resist them?

SUMMER is officially here and so are summer flowers……..


of course there are orchids which are mass produced, and you can buy them at every super market.

and there are orchids from this korean grower,  grown to perfection with patience and love……..  

and he comes up with new little hybrids all the time…… and to my surprise they last cut up to 2 weeks!!!!

and then…… DAHLIAS…….. such a summer party flower………. i could not resist and had to combine them with these breath taking

water lilies, peonies from oregon and lavender…….. a bowl of summer abundance…….

and then, short and compact DELPHINIUM, grown expertly by james hatano, a 3rd generation japanese american grower in his 80s…..

the last grower in palos verdes, recently featured on page one in the LA TIMES.

anyway, i cannot resist those summer beauties……… and neither should you……..




  1. Beautiful compositions Ilga. I love the dahlia, waterlilly, peony bowl. Looks good enough to eat! The orchids are also gorgeous. Not familiar with the Delphinium. What a vibrant hue!

  2. Simply Elegant CHIC, timeless. Ilga’s hands create POETIC floral Symphonies that sing of Grace. Adore the orchids~ Zen and Precious. Vintage Style Floral Design is like Technicolor film from those old movies, so delicious ……
