Thought you might enjoy a bouquet from garden arranged by my DD. I don't arrange well so leave it to her. We are a team, I pick, she arranges.

Pretty Lenjo! Just above the bottommost lily, what are the small florets in red, and then above that to the right, sort of a red berry cluster?
Great colors. I have nothing but 'bland' blooming except for one lone blaze orange lily, some early snaps and foxglove.

The little red florets are a lychnis, Maltese Cross is the specific variety. And the red berry thing is a bloom from a Sambucus or diablo ninebark. It is a large shrub and the blooms are really a fun mixer. Thanks for the compliment.
