May highlights in floral photography

We are ending the month with sunshine, peonies and unicorns, so it's hard to believe this low key set up was how I felt at the start of May.

I am trying a bouquet a week with leftovers and foragings from my garden. I'm getting more confident but they feel a bit triangular. I'll be working on going bigger and more freeform next month.

May has been mostly about the ranunculus, at least until the peonies arrived:

I have a new favourite backdrop from Capture By Lucy - it's called grey temple walls and adds a fabulous splash of texture and atmosphere:

There has been plenty going on at Claire's field this month (PlantPassion):

The peonies are here and don't they know it:
