|I added stems of Vitex trifolia because the undersides of its leaves are a lovely purple color. The lavender Lisianthus, planted last May, was supposed to be a brownish red but it clearly isn't that.|
|Back view: I'm hoping the drooping Vitex leaves recover with a little more time in water. I realize they look sad in this photograph. They've perked up a bit since I took it.|
The brightly colored foliage of the 'Fuyu' persimmon grabs my attention every time I walk through my garden so I cut a couple of stems and paired it with berries for an impromptu second vase.
|I paired the persimmon leaves (Diospyros kaki 'Fuyu') with berries of Auranticarpa rhombifolium|
While the Grevillea flowers in last week's vase didn't hold up well against the power of our new heating system, the rest of the contents of the vase did so I cleaned it up and moved it to the dining table, which is finally clear of debris.
|The flowers of the lovely Amaryllis (Hippeastrum 'Zombie') have lifted their pretty heads a bit since last week|
Meanwhile, the new vase moved to the table in the front entry.
