|Though, instead of a sheep horn, it reminds me more of the sandworms in the Dune series by Frank Herbert|
My first thought was that it would work well with an air plant (Tillandsia) or succulent cuttings but I ended up using flowers instead.

|Clockwise from the left, the vase contains: lavender Freesia, the papery flowers of Limonium perezii, Coriandrum sativum, and white Freesia|
I'd originally planned on a vase using orange and yellow flowers for the front entry so I went ahead and put that together too. The color scheme was based on the small flowers of Grevillea rosmarinifolia x alpina, which I've been admiring for several weeks now.
|Clockwise from the left, the vase contains: Grevillea 'Peaches & Cream', Grevillea rosmarinifolia x alpina, Abelia x grandiflora 'Hopley's Variegated', yellow Freesia, noID Narcissus, Papaver nudicaule, and white (and yellow) Ranunculus|
Lest you think I neglected my dining table, I took care of that spot earlier in the week when I trimmed back the larger of my 2 Leucadendron 'Wilson's Wonder' shrubs.
|The Leucadendron's "flowers" are past their prime but still attractive. Although this vase was packed with stems and I took more to a friend, many more still went into our green recycle bin.|
The new vase ended up on the coffee table in the living room, while the second vase took its intended place in the front entry.
