|While both the Camellia and Leptospermum flowers are pretty, I'm not sure they do much for one another|
|The back view is nearly identical|
|The vase contains only the glossy-leaved stems of a noID Camellia sasanqua and the prickly stems Leptospermum scoparium 'Pink Pearl'|
As my bush violets are on the wane, I thought I'd also assemble another vase using them while I still could but the flowers were sparser than I'd realized so I ended up picking bits and pieces of a lot of other things to fill out the vase, creating a mish-mash. I was pleased to find a one blue Lisianthus in bloom, though.
|While some ensemble casts may be considered greater than the sum of their parts, I don't think that can be said of this one|
|The arrangement ended up lop-sided too|
Both vases this week might have been more effective had I kept their contents simpler I think. We'll see if I can manage to keep that lesson in mind next week.
