These miniature flowers are perfect for small spaces (and budgets)

I saw a whole drift of King Alfred types the other day (probably the ubiquitous Carlton) in front of a country house hotel in Ireland. Planted along the entrance lawn by the hundreds, they had a pleasing presence and scale — their yellow brilliance was a match for the veil of drizzle. But as a cut flower in a table arrangement, they were a bit frightening. I looked away and asked for the cheese board.It took me a long time to fully understand the delight of small daffodils, but now I wouldn’t be without them, either in autumn planting season or in April, payoff time.Everything about them is delicate and refined, from their buttonlike cups to their grasslike leaves. Many are intensely fragrant. What they lack in bloom size, they can make up in the sheer number of flowers.[Chase away the winter blues with these lovely early-blooming trees and shrubs]Brent Heath, the daffodil deity from Gloucester, Va., says one of his new hybrids, Sunlight Sensation, has as many as five stems per bulb, each with four or five blooms. A dozen bulbs might give you 300 flowers. “It has a lovely fruitlike fragrance,” he said.Even long-established varieties combine delicacy with abundance. Minnow, white with yellow cups, has been around since the 1960s and still deserves to be in every garden.

Queen Victoria and the Orange Blossom Flower

Queen’s nine children – the Princess Royal, Prince Albert Edward, Princess Alice and Prince Alfred. The orange blossom jewellery is exquisite, with white flowers created from porcelain, oranges of green enamel and gilded leaves. The brooches were given first, and the full ‘parure’ followed later; one of these brooches is preserved today in its original green box, with a gilded plaque on its lid reading: “Sent to me by dear Albert from Wiesbaden, Novr. 1839”.Queen Victoria loved the jewellery suite and usually wore some of it on subsequent wedding anniversaries.Orange trees have long been a feature within royal gardens, not least at Versailles, where their fragrance was adored by Louis XIV. Queen Anne’s orange trees had been intended to winter in the Orangery at Kensington Palace – Queen Victoria’s birthplace – but instead, the Orangery became a more popular choice for balls and court entertainments, during her reign. The Orangery at Hampton Court Palace is still used today, to house the beloved orange trees of William III, England’s joint monarch from the House of Orange.©Elizabeth Jane Timms, 2018...

More than just flowers: Georgia O'Keeffe at the Art Gallery of Ontario ...

She constantly stated that flowers were just flowers and colors were just colors. Her longtime partner and eventual husband, artist and art dealer Alfred Stieglitz (1864-1946), often took and created intimate nude photos and portraits of her as part of his own work. Even if these remained precious to him as personal representations of his love for O’Keeffe, the public couldn’t keep its hands off and flocked to enshrine her as the sexualized, misunderstood being, only truly seen through her cryptic paintings of flowers.Both Stieglitz’s photos and O’Keeffe’s flower paintings are displayed at the AGO along with many other paintings from O’Keefe’s other periods. Her many lavishly, contrastingly colored landscape portraits of the American Southwest portrayed her fascination and wonder with the region. Although always in love with New York, something about the region spoke to her—a sense of solitude unattainable in New York, yet unexplainably perfect. Yet even O’Keeffe’s paintings of animal skulls—her foray into abstractionism—became twisted into what the public wanted to see. People saw her as a loner, almost some kind of mystical being, and O’Keeffe felt as if she had to shift from abstract paintings to more realistic, as even her works depicting animal skulls that she found out in the desert could no longer be presented without some kind of manipulated imagery of pent-up lust or romanticized sentiment.Even as she aged, O’Keeffe as “the artist” became a figure that everyone knew. She was on the covers of magazines and the subject of articles, always associated with her life in New Mexico. Her paintings of the landscape and the natural features became closely associated with the reclusiveness of her life once Stieglitz passed. I found the exhibit immensely frustrating yet immensely eye-opening, especially with Stieglitz’s work placed ... (The Stanford Daily)
