Here's what I included:
|Top: Rosa 'California Dreamin', said to have a strong citrus scent but it's perfume seemed light to my nose|
Bottom, left to right: Abelia 'Kaleidoscope', Achillea 'Moonshine', Correa pulchella 'Pink Eyre', and Leucadendron 'Pisa'
I cut a few flowers that I didn't use in my featured vase so I popped these stems into the tiny blue vase that sits near my kitchen sink, where it complements the ceramic pig that holds my tea bags (alas, not cookies).
|The 3-inch vase holds Argyranthemum frutescens 'Angelic Giant Pink' and Leptospermum scoparium 'Pink Pearl'|
For more floral and foliage concoctions, visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden.
P.S. For those of you who expressed interest in how long last week's Bauhinia x blakeana (Hong Kong orchid tree) blooms last in the vase, the answer is 2 days. Beautiful as they are, they aren't particularly good subjects for a vase. The buds don't open once the stem is cut either.
