Even though several commentators had a favorable impression of the second arrangement I presented last week, I wasn't at all happy with it. Starting with the same silver foliage of Centaurea 'Silver Feather', I decided to attempt a do-over this week. While I'm not exactly over the moon about it, I'm more satisfied with this version than last week's creation.
|One stray Lisianthus (Eustoma grandiflorum) flower opened last week so it received pride of placement front-and-center|
|Much as I love Lisianthus, I almost prefer this back view of the arrangement, which emphasizes the beautiful foliage of 'Silver Feather'|
|Clockwise from the upper left: Hebe 'Purple Shamrock', Pennisetum advena 'Rubrum', Persicaria capitata, Centaurea 'Silver Feather', Correa pulchella 'Pink Eyre', Eustoma grandiflorum, and Leucadendron salignum 'Blush'|
With flowers still in short supply, I stopped at one arrangement this week. It's been a long time since I've done that but last week's first arrangement featuring a Phalaenopsis orchid, Leucadendron 'Safari Sunset' and Mangave 'Bloodspot' bloom spikes, is still in near perfect condition and I have a few other vases also kicking around the house that I haven't shared online so I wasn't driven to create another arrangement.
