|Yogurt and berries are my regular breakfast|
Unfortunately, I was hungry so I ate my prop before arranging my vase but here it is, prop-less:
|Front view: The blue Eustoma grandiflorum were a last minute addition - they're perfect floral stand-ins for blueberries (and they were flopping in the garden on weak stems)|
|Back view: Abelia x grandiflora has been blooming for months now|
|Top view: The pink Eustoma (the color of my strawberry yogurt), almost hidden here, is not nearly as heavily petaled as those that bloomed earlier|
I hadn't planned on using Eustoma grandiflorum (Lisianthus) this week, at least not the blue or pink forms, but the flowers I initially cut needed something to punch up the arrangement so in they crept.
While the vase shown above featured berry colors, it didn't include any actual berries. I remedied that with a second vase. Simpler than the first, it has only 3 ingredients.
|Front view: The orange berries are making a solid effort to eclipse the Grevillea and Leucadendron here|
|The back view is all about the Leucadendron|
|The top view looks more balanced|
|From the left, the vase contains: berries of Auranticarpa rhombifolia, Grevillea 'Superb' and Leucadendron 'Wilson's Wonder'|
As other participants in this meme have commented, this meme can become addictive. Every time I consider skipping a week, I ask myself if I really want to go without flowers and/or foliage of some kind on my dining room table and, once I walk into the garden, the process takes hold and I find myself clipping a little of this and a little of that. So here we are, two vases to brighten the week:
|One in the front entry|
|One on the dining room table|
