|Back view: I kept this vase simpler than most|
|Clockwise from the left: Bauhinia x blakeana (aka Hong Kong orchid tree), Coleonema pulchellum 'Sunset Gold', Cuphea x ignea 'Starfire Pink', and Lavandula multifida (aka fernleaf lavender)|
My second arrangement features the vase I received from a good friend as a Christmas present. It has a relatively small opening, which I stuffed with bits and pieces scavenged from different corners of my garden.
|It's not so much an arrangement as a collection of miscellaneous cuttings|
|Back view: The green Chrysanthemums I purchased at the supermarket 2 weeks ago are past their prime but I tucked some of the most presentable stems here too|
|Clockwise from the upper left: Digitalis purpurea 'Dalmatian White', Argyranthemum frutescens 'Everest', noID Chrysanthemum, noID Narcissus, Pittosporum tenufolium 'Silver Magic', Polygala fruticosa 'Petite Butterfly', and noID Viola|
With the introduction of our kitchen island, I now seem to feel compelled to have a vase there, as well as in the front entry and on the dining room table. Luckily, I still have a steady supply of Amaryllis (Hippeastrum 'Zombie') blooming in my shade house so I've been able to refresh the dining room display as needed. What am I going to do when that supply dries up?!
