Centerpiece of the Day - Summer Meets Fall

As my car thermostat reads 108 degrees, I'm thinking (as I turn up the AC) that summer has finally hit Los Angeles, right in time for Fall! As an ode to the heat wave, I am posting the "centerpiece of the day," an effective blend of summer vibrancy offset by a subdued fall palette.

It is amazing how such a simple blend of roses, ranunculas and tulips can have such a strong voice. The textures of the different petals, the color patterns of each flower head, and the use of neutrals to allow the eye to rest, all work wonderfully and effortlessly together.
