I can’t remember if I’ve specifically themed an arrangement before, but this one is inspired by the myth of Hades and Persephone.
Dead branches (bottle brush I think but that doesn’t matter), tortured willow, pussy willow, feral rocket, seaside daisy, Bradford pear, ranunculus.
Because talking and walking are the best.
He doesn’t talk much, but she speaks enough for both of them.

It’s not my trick that keeps you so near.
You chose me.
