|The best guess thus far is that the sweetly scented lavender rose is 'Angel Face'|
The second vase with Barleria obtusa as a focal point didn't turn out as I'd envisioned it. The Barleria has relatively short stems, which flower from base to tip. Using it in an arrangement requires stripping the lower blooms to create a clean stem to place in the vase, which seems a pity so I cut just 2 stems and used a short vase. I'd intended to stick to blue and white flowers but, with white blooms in short supply in my garden at the moment, I tucked in a few pink flowers to fill out the vase.

|I like the view of the vase from the top best in this case|
The second vase sits in the front entry. The first sits on the dining room table, where we can enjoy its scent.
