I'd wanted to use purple and blues this week; however, there weren't enough blooms in those colors to make a splash. In contrast, the pink flowers in the garden screamed for attention.
|Pink flowers were used as the focal point in this vase with purple and blue serving as accents|
|Most of the purple and blues were relegated to the back of the vase|
|The large leaves of the Melianthus made it difficult to get decent views of the vases from the top|
|Clockwise from the upper left, this vase contains: Camellia x williamsii 'Taylor's Perfection', noID Dianthus, Lavandula multifida, Limonium perezii, Melianthus major, Rhodanthemum hosmariense, Globularia indubia, and Matthiola incana|
The last few stems of the snapdragons set the color scheme for the second vase.
|I tried to give the arrangement some panache with the first Calla Lily of the season|
|The back is all about the Melianthus foliage|
|Clockwise from the left, the vase contains: Zantedeschia aethiopica, Antirrhinum majus, noID Narcissus, Melianthus major, and Tagetes lemmonii|
I threw the leftover stems of Melianthus and Narcissus into a third vase because I didn't have the heart to toss them in the trash.
Both the Narcissus and the Tagetes have scents my husband doesn't particularly like but he hasn't complained (yet).
|The pink and purple vase sits in the entry; the second vase is on the dining room table; and the third is in my office|
