|I picked just about all of the coral, peach and yellow zinnias I had left in the cutting garden|
|Rear view: Not an exciting arrangement perhaps but cheerful|
|Clockwise from the upper right: Zinnia elegans (probably from the Cactus and California Giant seed mixes), the ripening berries of a noID Cotoneaster that planted itself at the base of one of my Arbutus trees, and Agonis flexuosa 'Nana'|
Despite last week's blast of heat, Plectranthus ciliatus 'Zulu Wonder' continued to produce a steady stream of new blooms and as I still had a few Eustoma grandiflorum (Lisianthus) blooming in the garden, I cut more of both. As most of last week's Eustoma were still looking good, I also repurposed those for this week's second vase. It's not an exact match of last week's vase, though, as I altered the supporting cast.
|Pretty Erigeron glaucus and Leucanthemum blooms added a fresh touch to this week's arrangement|
|Last week's "black" Eustoma blooms bring up the rear, accompanied by stems of the weedy Artemisia that planted itself in my garden and the always available Gomphrena 'Itsy Bitsy'|
|The top view highlights the lavender blush form of Eustoma, looking just as fresh as it did in last week's vase|
I hadn't planned to duplicate the color schemes I used last week but that's what happened.
