Here's what I included:

But wait! There's more. (Do I sound like an infomercial?) The orchid arrangement that had been sitting on the dining room table for 2 weeks was looking haggard but the Cymbidium centerpiece was still in perfect condition. I threw away the other contents of the vase and created a new one using that same Cymbidium flower stalk.
|The buds at the top of the Cymbidium's flower stalk have opened since I created the original arrangement for my February 29th "IAVOM" post|

|I was tired of breakfasting with the Cymbidium so, this week, it landed in the front entryway|
No, I didn't stop there. With some rain expected Sunday evening, I decided to "rescue" a few of my Camellias as they don't usually look their best after rain.
|Camellia hybrid 'Taylor's Perfection' has been blooming for 6 weeks and hasn't received the attention it deserves|
I briefly considered creating a blue or purple arrangement as well but I stopped myself. Maybe next week.
