|Back view, dominated by New Zealand tea tree flowers (Leptospermum scoparium) and the dried berries on the Auranticarpa rhombifolia foliage I'd cut while pruning on Saturday|
The leftovers went into the vintage vase I found back in January while shopping with a friend in Ventura.
|The vase is a woman's manicured hands with flowered ruffles at her wrists|
|Clockwise from the left, the vase contains: Pelargonium peltatum 'Pink Blizzard', Cuphea x ignea 'Starfire Pink', and Iresine herbstii 'Brilliantissima'|
Last week's vase with the chartreuse Aeoniums still occupies the dining table so the big Valentine's Day vase landed on the front entry and the smaller vase sits on the bedroom mantle.
Putting the big vase on the entryway table with a chair next to it is somewhat risky on my part. The bobbly bits of Gomphrena 'Itsy Bitsy' could be awfully tempting to a certain cat.
|She just looks innocent!|
For more Monday vases, visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden. Have a happy Valentine's Day!
