All my friends florists are not indifferent to hogweed. Powerful, aggressive, proud, every summer it lines up along the roads as a silent army of many, with its magnificence attracting the lustful glances of professionals. But few will dare to touch the plant at this time. But in late autumn, on the eve of a long winter, the cow parsnip reveals the opposite qualities: fragile, touching umbrellas on bare darkened stems sway under the cold sky, and a rare heart will not falter at the sight of this impeccable in its defenselessness graphics.
This is how I saw this plant, and I wanted to give it a holiday, wrap thin twigs with soft mohair, decorate with unearthly flowers that promise that spring will come.
List of materials required to create this composition:
cow parsnip umbrellas, cleared of seeds,
- a couple of branches of Wax Flowers,
- mohair thread,
- glue for living plants,
We wrap the stem and rays of the umbrella of the cow parsnip with mohair threads and fix the ends
thread with a drop of glue.
We paste over the composition with flowers.
We install the finished "Christmas tree" on the kenzan.
