|I used a mix of the purple-colored dahlia varieties this week|
|I threw in a few zinnias to flesh out the vase|
I also cut a few stems from the Hong Kong orchid tree (Bauhinia x blakeana) as it's finally flowering again. It's flowers don't usually last long so I just threw together what was handy to fill out the vase, creating something of a mish-mash.
|The Japanese anemones I inherited with the garden are blooming surprisingly well this year|
|The back view of the vase is a mess|
Photographing my vases this week was made harder this week by my cat's interest in participating.
|Outtakes of Pipig persistently checking out the flowers as I tried to photograph them in a spot on the floor in the corner of my home office|
Both new vases are currently in the master bedroom but, as I was keeping the light low there to allow my husband to rest, I couldn't take any decent photos. Instead, I offer these shots of the completed vases sitting on the unfinished cabinets in our new kitchen.
|Even with no electrical light operating here yet, the new kitchen space has good natural light|
|View of the cabinets after installation. We still have to paint and install countertops, backsplash and flooring but installation of the new roof is first up on the docket this week.|
