|Grevillea 'Superb' photographed last week in the front garden|
The Grevillea was a natural choice for this week's "In a Vase on Monday," the meme hosted by Cathy at Rambling in the Garden.
Here's a closer look at the individual elements:
The wind has also been hard on the last of the two poinsettias I used to create holiday-themed pots to stand outside the front door in mid-December.
|This vignette was my entry into the "Poinsettia Challenge" sponsored by Loree of danger garden last December|
It was time to put away the gnome, the final remnant of my holiday decorations, and change out the contents of the pots by the front door. However, as there were a few nice "blooms" still left on poinsettia, I decided to put them in a vase before retiring the remains of the plant.
|This poinsettia (Euphorbia pulcherrima) didn't start to deteriorate significantly until about a week ago, although the variegated form I planted began to fall apart in mid-January|
By pure coincidence, both vases this week offer lots of coral color.
|The arrangement containing the Grevilleas ended up on the dining room table|
|The 3 poinsettia stems, after scalding in hot water, sit in the front entry|
