The black ceramic vase is a thrift store find and the sand cast glass head, raging against the dying of the light, was made by a local artist. A nice sunny afternoon meant that I got to throw this arrangement together outside but it will sit on the kitchen counter where I can enjoy the strong fragrances . Here it's posing on a branch of the Corylus avellana 'Contorta' that I planted nearly twenty years ago.
The straight "trunk" you can see in the middle background is a pseudostem of Muss basjoo.
In a Vase on Monday is hosted by Cathy at Rambling in the Garden. Do visit her blog to see her arrangement and find links to those of other participants.
