|What do you think?|
|I filled in with other flowers and foliage in chartreuse tones|
|This is what Leucadendron 'Goldstrike' looks like in my garden|
|I used stems of this mutant Aeonium bloom in the arrangement. Aeoniums normally produce cone-shaped bloom spikes.|
|Clockwise from the upper left: Abelia 'Kaleidoscope', Aeonium arboreum, Euphorbia rigida, noID Narcissus, Prunus laurocerasus (aka English Laurel), Tanacetum parthenium (aka Feverfew) and, in the middle, Leucadendron 'Safari Goldstrike'|
I created a second vase as usual. I'd originally intended to put it together for Valentine's Day but as it was sopping wet outside for two solid days I didn't get to it until Saturday morning. As Sunday was my wedding anniversary, it still seemed appropriate.
|The centerpiece is Calliandra haematocephala (aka Pink Powder Puff)|
|but I think the real star is the pink and white-flowered Grevillea 'Penola'|
|I added some white Dianthus for contrast|
The house is flower-filled at the moment. In addition to the two new vases, I have two tiny vases containing cast-offs from one of this week's vases and remnants of one of last week's vases, plus an orchid I received from my husband and another pot of orchids received from a lovely family that visited my garden on Saturday.
|The two new vases landed in the usual spots on the dining and front-entry tables|
|My husband bought me a Phalaenopsis to mark our anniversary. The other pot was a gift from my visitors. Both pots will join the other orchids in my lath house once the flowers are spent and temperatures warm.|
I hope you find some color to brighten your week too. Visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden to see what she and her merry band of IAVOM contributors have to share this week.
