Wax Flowers

 So many of you have emailed or asked about what these little delicate flowers are 
that were in my posts last week.

They are called Wax Flowers

You can find them in shades of pink
delicate purples
 simple whites

I found these bouquets of them at Safeway where the florists use them as fillers for bouquets
but I love them in a bouquet just by themselves

and maybe with a few white pumpkins.

See you this afternoon
for Feathered Nest Friday!

    1. I found these at Safeway grocery store- you could try there or your local florist should be able to get them for you if they don't stock them.

  2. I love the wax flowers with your pumpkins! :D

  3. Je ne connaissais pas les fleurs de cire. Elles peuvent à elles seules faire de magnifiques bouquets remplis de légèreté.
    Gros bisous et merci pour ces belles photos.

  4. Ciao Courtney
    ti seguo da tantissimo e devo proprio dirti che ADORO il tuo blog.
    è assolutamente fantastico in tutto.
    Buona giornata

  5. I think they are ovely so delicate and pretty. What a funny name for flowers. I think I have a spray or two of them in the bouquet I was given last week. Must go and look! Joan

  6. We want to sit down in this attractive just and autumn show to dream about it...

  7. Wow-beautiful photos!!! Vicky

  8. They are really pretty flowers and you photographed them so beautifully.

  9. These pretty little flowers are native to my home state of Western Australia. They are called 'Geraldton Wax' after the town where they proliferate and because of the waxy texture of the petals. They grow in huge bushes down the middle and sides of freeways and roads here in the capital city of Perth - I'm afraid we take them for granted as they are so adundant but your photos helped me to see their beauty with new eyes. Thank you.

    1. Wow- thanks so much for sharing about them! I just discovered them recently- but absolutely love them! :)

  10. Never saw them in France but so beautiful and poetic !

  11. Hi Courtney! These little flowers are so sweet, they remind me of babies breath!
    Hugs, Penny

    Just beautiful, and extra special with the white pumpkin.

  14. Love the flowers with the pumpkins, the color combo is stunning.

  15. Courtney you are fast becoming my favorite flower photographer. Sooooo beautiful my friend! I had never heard of "wax flowers" either, but I'll be looking for them at Safeway for sure *winks* Vanna

  16. Those sweet flowers are just adorable, Courtney! I remember using them when I worked in a floral shop one year. They even feel waxy, don't they? :) They are just a perfect combination with white pumpkins. :)

  17. Yes, they are an Australian Wild Flower called Geraldton Wax. They come from Western Australia. I remember my Mother having a few plants in her garden in Sydney. They are a pretty and delicate flower.
