everytime we hear the word chrysanthemum, a certain schoolhouse scene in the film anne of green gables–the one where anne out-spells gilbert in the spelling bee–springs to mind. (and we’ve remembered to include the “e” ever since). and when someone says valentine roses, our mind wanders to visions of leane shapton’s oversized floral paintings. alas, sometimes bright florals can even be playing peek-a-boo in a beautiful typeface.
you see, bold blooms — be it in color, size or spelling — can be found all around us.
all month long we’ll be filling our feed with sunny shots of eye-catching fire escape florals, fluorescent bouquets and petals that pack a powerful punch. show us what fresh picks spark your interest by tagging your posts with the hashtag #boldblooms .
