This week I put together two smaller arrangements using flowers in colors on opposite sides of the color wheel. The first one was created using blue flowers.
|Because I so frequently have difficulty accurately capturing the color of blue flowers, I photographed this arrangement from a different vantage point to take advantage of the kitchen's under-cabinet lights|
|Clockwise from the upper left: noID Ceanothus, Osteospermum '4D Silver', Salvia discolor, Teucrium fruticans 'Azureum', and Westringia fruticosa 'Morning Light'|
Orange is blue's complimentary color.
|After 4 weeks, it was time to retire the arrangement I've had on the kitchen island. Its replacement kicked off with 2 snapdragon stems.|
|Back view: Grevillea 'Superb' is always available to fill any role required of it in an arrangement|
|Clockwise from the upper left: Agonis flexuosa 'Nana', Antirrhinum majus, Grevillea 'Superb', and Tagetes lemmonii|
The Triplets are still on the living room mantel, looking exactly like they did last week without the benefit of any water whatsoever. The arrangement created using Hippeastrum 'Luna' last week is still in place too. With warmer temperatures last week, the remaining Hippeastrum bloom stalks on my back patio are opening quickly but hopefully they'll hold their blooms at least another week.
|I'm still scouting my garden for suitable companions to compliment the Hippeastrum's color|
