As spring emerges, there are all kinds of pretty blooms from trees, shrubs and flowering bulbs. Even the bright green of new leaf growth is pretty enough to use in this arrangement.

Step 1

Walk around and take some cuttings. I still had pruning to do on my viburnum and dogwood so they were easy choices. Also, I had Solomon’s seal that was invading my chives and lily of the valley (somewhat invasive) that was invading a Japanese painted fern. I added a few cuttings from a fothergilla bush and for interest, some viburnum summer snowflake.

Find a bowl or vase and add some chicken wire, a floral frog or some other piece to hold your stems. I had an grapevine sphere from an old topiary, and it was perfect for this application.

Start with some of your strongest pieces first to make a base, such as thicker branches from trees or shrubs.

Next build from there adding smaller stems and flowers. Finally fill in with more delicate plant material and greenery.
