The Senna bicapsularis I used in one of last week's vases is now in full bloom so I cut more of that, which set me on a yellow theme.
|From the left, the vase contains: Agonis flexuosa 'Nana', Senna bicapsularis, and Gaillardia aristata 'Gallo Peach'. (Tanacetum parthenium was also included.)|
What didn't fit in the first vase filled 2 others, the first of which is an eclectic mix.
|A single stem of Anemone hupehensis japonica bloomed in our backyard border, a relic of the garden's past when water was more plentiful. I brought it inside so I could more thoroughly appreciate its fleeting beauty.|
|In addition to the anemone, this vase contains Grevillea 'Peaches & Cream' and Phylica pubescens|
I had only cream-colored Zinnias left after outfitting the second vase so I recycled the silvery Leucadendron stems from last week's arrangements and added 2 stems of pale yellow Eustoma grandiflorum to complete a third arrangement, using a decorative teapot that formerly belonged to my mother-in-law as a vase. This one is my personal favorite this week.
|This vase contains: Pale yellow Eustoma grandiflorum (one stem bearing flowers with a slight pink blush), Leucadendron 'Pisa', and Zinnia 'Profusion White'|
The 3 vases assumed positions in the usual spots.
|This is the best photo I could manage of the first vase in the front entryway. The glare of the setting sun streamed through the glass inserts in our front door making a clearer photo impossible.|
|The second arrangement sits on the mantle in the master bedroom (where hopefully the cat will not knock it down)|
|And the teapot arrangement sits on the dining room table|
