|I wasn't sure the dahlia fit the arrangement but, as the bloom was perfect for cutting this week, in it went|
|The back view shows off the pretty sprays of white Leptospermum 'Copper Glow' flowers, arranged more loosely along their stems than flowers of the Leptospermum 'Pink Pearl' I've used more often|
|The top view shows the Leucadendron "flowers," actually bracts, which make me think of the buds of long-stem roses|
|Clockwise from the upper left, the vase contains: Dahlia 'Otto's Thrill', Leptospermum 'Copper Glow', noID Leucadendron salignum (possibly 'Devil's Blush'), and Leucanthemum x superbum|
My Eustoma grandiflorum (Lisianthus) are off to a slow start but I found a smattering of blue and white blooms to make up a second small vase.
|I used 4 colors of Lisianthus in this vase: white, pale lavender, blue, and purple|
|Top view: I love the greenish color at the middle of the white Lisianthus|
|Clockwise from the upper left, the vase contains: Ageratum houstonianum 'Blue Horizon' with Catananche caerulea, Trichostema 'Midnight Magic' (a hybrid of California native Wooly Blue Curls), and Eustoma grandiflorum|
