|It's hard to believe that I avoided red in my former tiny garden, feeling that it overwhelmed the space. There are plenty of flowers and foliage in that color in my current garden.|
I used another new vase. You may note that it looks similar to the one I used a couple of weeks ago. The garden center at which I purchased the earlier vase had 3 versions with the same shape but complementary designs. Well, as I had lunch planned with a friend and as he lives in Orange County, I offered to meet him down that way and, having a little free time prior to our appointment, I paid another visit to the garden center, leaving with the other 2 vases. Serendipity!
|This version of the urn-shaped vase has more ivory color in its surface design|
My second vase is simpler.
|The narrow throat of this vase limits how much I can stuff into it, which in my case is a good thing|
|Clockwise from the left, this vase contains: Pseuderanthemum 'Texas Tri-star', Argyranthemum frutescens, Coriandrum sativum, noID Dianthus, and the first Lathyrus odoratus (sweet peas), blooming in pink for the holiday|
The house no longer feels right without a vase on the dining table and another in the front entry and that's where this week's vases landed.
|After snapping my photo of the arrangement on the left, I noticed that the Anthurium on the credenza behind the arrangement is sporting heart-shaped leaves - how appropriate!|
Visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for more vases. Happy Valentine's Day to all my favorite amateur florists and IaVoM participants!
