In any case, the new vase called out for blue flowers. Finding a single stem of Ceanothus already in bloom sealed the deal. I'd planned to stick to a blue and white palette but, although the vase is relatively short (about 7 inches tall), the stems I collected were generally shorter still. So I ended up adding bright yellow Iceland poppies to the mix to get the extra height the arrangement needed.

There's a second vase (of course). Two of my largest Leucadendrons are going nuts and it's almost impossible to ignore them when passing through the garden.
|The back view could have used some dressing up but I ran out of time|
|Clockwise from the upper left, this vase contains: Leucadendron salignum 'Chief', L. 'Wilson's Wonder', noID Narcissus, and Zantedeschia aethiopica|
That's it for my interior decorating this week. For more Monday vases, visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden.
