With spring here, people will be hanging flowers in parks and their outdoor living spaces. Adding beauty. And maybe a little drama.

I think drama is what makes great flower decor.

When you hang flowers — on a porch, lamp post, veranda, deck, backyard, garden — you put them on stage. Fedor van der Falk, a Dutch theater set designer, got me thinking about this. He’s created hanging flowers he calls “flower balls.” Where and how he hangs them adds drama.

His photos got me looking at photos of hanging flowers from around the world. These photos won’t win Oscars, but I hope they give you patio ideas. Or garden ideas. Or at least brighten your day!
