|Front view: This arrangement is similar to one I created a month ago, albeit without the Moroccan daisies and with a different vase|
|Back view: Although it's a bit of a shame to cut the long stems of the lilies short, that was necessary in using this ornamental teapot as a vase|
|The vase contains just 3 materials: Freesias, Zantedeschia aethiopica flowers, and a few Zantedeschia leaves|
While I appreciate the simplicity of my first vase, with spring in full gear in my garden, I also felt the need to bring some of that riotous color inside. The oldest of my Grevillea 'Superb' shrubs is now large and floriferous enough to cut long stems so, with those in hand, I hunted down plant material to complement the coral color of the shrub's blooms.
|Front view: Strong corals and oranges with a touch of yellow as an accent|
|Back view, showing more yellow color|
The vase full of Leucadendron stems I created over 2 weeks ago still looked good but it got evicted from the dining room table in favor of the vase featuring the Grevillea flowers. The Calla Lilies sit in the front entryway.
|Here are the Leucadendron 'Wilson's Wonder' stems photographed on March 3rd (left) and March 19th (right)|
|And here are the new vases in their places|
