I'd already cut a lily and feverfew to accompany the Digitalis in the vase. But, having spent so much time carefully rinsing each tubular flower of the foxglove, I ran out of time for additional fussing. As the stems of Leucadendron salignum 'Chief' I used in last week's composition were still in perfect condition, I decided to recycle those by using them as this week's foliage accent too. I think they actually look better this week than they did when I photographed last week's bouquet - the stems opened up some during the course of last week. Do you ever recycle materials cut for one arrangement for use in another?
I also reused last week's glass vase as its yellow color fit the mix better than the other vases in my collection. The vase contains:
- Digitalis x mertonensis 'Polka Dot Pippa'
- Lily, an unscented, unknown variety received as a gift with purchase
- Tanacetum parthenium 'Aureum'
- Leucadendron salignum 'Chief'
This bouquet is my contribution to the collection assembled by our host, Cathy, at Rambling in the Garden. Click here to see her creation and to find links to bouquets constructed by other gardeners this week.
