Amaryllis & Baby’s Breath

Gypsophila, Baby’s Breath, is a genus of flowering plants in the carnation family. I do love making a bouquet with lots of little white baby’s breath. Luckily Publix, the local supermarket, has a bunch for only $4.  I added one stalk of amaryllis from the yard which has 4 red and white blooms plus a few white alstroemeria. It makes me happy!

  1. I’m happy, too, looking at the photos of your arrangement, Carol. I don’t know why I got so surprised about baby’s breath and carnations being of the same family. After I thought about it, I saw the connection in my mind. Ha, I never thought it’d be fun learning about plants.

  2. That’s really clever to use supermarket flowers as filler with your own beautiful focus flower! Publix has a nice selection of flowers…only trouble being its location right next to the bakery which I try to ignore ))

    1. Oh I know it’s devious of them – it’s so hard walking by the bakery to get to the fresh veggies and fruits!

  3. Such beautiful colors in your bouquet, and an unusual combination! Many thanks for sharing this beauty with All Seasons, Blog Friend! Have an awesome week:)

I love to make new friends and get to know you.
