Spring Flower Basket

Flower magazine’s Jessica Cohen shows how to make a colorful, spring flower basket arrangement with step-by-step instructions

This basket is filled with cheerful spring flowers. Daffodils and tulips are a hallmark of spring and are some of my favorite flowering bulbs. I also included larkspur for its height and easy nature. To bring a lovely fragrance to the basket, I took cuttings from the wisteria vine in our backyard. Wisteria looks spectacular in the springtime, putting on a show of cascading, colorful blooms. For the finishing touch, I added a sweet little artificial bird’s nest. It’s time to enjoy the garden. Happy Spring!
