|The arrangement turned out a bit lopsided and no amount of futzing seemed to help, although I suspect that, if I crammed less into the vase, it would've been easier to put things in balance|
|Clockwise from the upper left, the vase contains: Grevillea 'Peaches & Cream', Alstroemeria 'Inca Husky', Calendula 'Bronzed Beauty', Digitalis purpurea 'Illumination Peach', yellow Freesia, Laurus nobilis, and Zantedeschia aethiopica|
With my springtime groove back in gear, the pink Alstroemeria blooming in the backyard border and pink and white Ranunculus in the cutting garden provided inspiration for a second vase.
|Feeling lazy, I used the same ornamental teapot I selected last week for my second vase|
|Clockwise from the upper left, the vase contains: noID pink Alstroemeria, Abelia x grandiflora 'Confetti', Antirrhinum majus, Coleonema album, Coprosma repens 'Fire Burst', white Freesia, and pink and white Ranunculus|
I briefly considered adding the first 'California Dreamin' rose blooming in the front garden to this vase but then thought better of it.
|The color was right but the bloom was already past its prime and so large that I thought it'd eclipse everything else in the vase|
The Monday after Easter isn't a holiday in the US. Pipig and I have an early morning visit to the vet in store for us, the fact of which she is still blissfully unaware.
|It's always a toss-up who will be more traumatized by a visit to the vet: Pipig or me|
If your holiday weekend includes Monday, enjoy the day! Visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden to find more Monday vases.
