Though I'd planned to limit my first vase to blue and white flowers, yellow crept into the color scheme as well.
|I blame Narcissus 'White Lion' for bringing yellow into the arrangement. 'White Lion', my favorite daffodil, appeared last week. As daffodils don't stand up well to our Santa Ana winds, the window of opportunity to use it in a vase may be limited.|
|Salvia heldreichiana, shown at the back of the vase here, was the impetus for the original blue and white color scheme but its delicate stems were quickly overwhelmed by more flamboyant blooms|
I didn't stray as much in putting together my pink vase, which was inspired by the Ranunculus blooming en masse in my cutting garden.
|My Alstroemerias seem late in arriving this year but they're all getting into gear now|
|I added a couple of stems of orange blossoms to this arrangement, which elevated what is otherwise a rather ordinary arrangement|
|Top view: Unlike the salmon-colored Ranunculus I used last week, most of the pink and white Ranunculus are much more densely petaled|
|Top row: noID Alstroemeria and Agryranthemum frutescens 'Mega White'|
Middle row: white ans pink picotee Ranunculus
Bottom row: Prunus laurocerasus, orange blossoms, and Coleonema pulchellum 'Sunset Gold'
