Isn’t that stem colour gorgeous? And the leaf edges tinged with it too.
The stamens and petals drop off to leave the flower bracts and the berries.
And it has the most unusual ‘seamed’ stem.
It has provided the inspiration for a colour combination I return to time and again when designing and making lampshades – it works well in many interior spaces, particularly period properties.
I’ll be working on another set of customised wall shades this week and will post some images of work in progress. Until then, have a good one.
