Silver looks good with almost everything but I really like it with blue.

You may not believe it but I hadn't intended to create a second vase this week as the pink vase assembled last week was still in good shape, so my front entry already had a floral focal piece. But I had more Leucadendron stems than I could use in the blue vase and I noticed that my tall Senna bicapsularis was just starting to bloom so with a few more snips of my secateurs I was committed to a second vase. The Senna, a host plant for the cloudless sulphur butterfly, Phoebis sennae, blooms for a few weeks so you're likely to see it again.
|Front view: most of the Senna flowers haven't opened yet so I threw in some pale yellow Eustoma grandiflorum as well|
|Back view, showing off foliage and a stem of Eustoma left over from one of last week's vases|
The blue bouquet bounced last week's pink arrangement from the front entry. (The pink one ended up in the master bedroom.)
The yellow arrangement sits on the dining room table.
Visit Cathy, our host for the "IaVoM" meme, at Rambling in the Garden to see what she and other gardeners have in their vases this week.
