This fun vase, a three dollar thrift store find, intrigued me. What would it be like to try and make an arrangement in something with such a wide flared lip? Do you suppose that this was made to have one large, short stemmed flower in it or was it just meant to be a lovely object?
Just as it was getting dark last night I ran out, secateurs, in hand to see what might be available to throw in the vase.
The seed heads of Iris foetidissima were looking especially nice as is the evergreen foliage of Cupressus arizonica var. glabra (Arizona Blue Ice Cypress.)
Magenta Dahlias and a stem of Physalis alkekengi (Chinese Lantern Plant)
Magnolia macrophylla cones collected on Saturday while doing a little pruning in the parking strip.
A little spring of fuchsia.
Everything had to come out and be rearranged to gt the paper out. Perhaps I'll start wiring things like the magnolia cones so that they can be placed in a wider variety of places in arrangements. Still not totally happy with this but am too lazy to futz with it anymore.
here to see her Monday vase and links to those of other participants 'round the world. Happy new week all!
