Pink

Pink floral art design.

"Pink

Cut the pink carnations very short

is like

Add a few stems, twigs and winged seedpods

red…

Wrap a few of the stems with dark pink wire

but

Create a low design with plant material that appears to float on the glass container

not quite

Pink carnation design

And I think everything is going to be all right..."
