Eryngium giganticum (fig 3,4 )
sea holly in Flower arranging show and trade...( 5, 6)
First four taken at NYBG summer of 2008. The trade pics from Kolkata 2007.
What has stayed with me over the years about sea holly, ever since
I was about 5 years old or so ...when I first saw my mom use them in
dry flower arrangements is the heavenly blue... that somehow has
light and shade and seems to play hide and seek, just like the she
hen of the peacock family's tail feathers... that are usually nothing spectacular...
that's why I never had the heart to delete these pictures from 2007 and 08...
enjoy, I do...
