A bouquet needn’t be huge. In fact, dainty arrangements are often best at the table, where you don’t want to be looking through the greenery to see your dinner companion. This dainty pitcher, made by a local clay artist, is only two and a half inches tall.
Nor does it need to be floral. This little posy is made up entirely of foliage: a dark Heuchera leaf and another that is H. ‘Marmalade’, two sprigs of Artemisia ‘Silver Brocade’ and three leafy tips from Weigelia ‘Wine and Roses’.
Put it on a different background and its whole character changes. Of course part of that is the camera adapting to different light readings too.
But I am partial to the look of the high gloss Alizarin Crimson of our coffee table as a background.
Do check in with Cathy to see what she and others have found to put in a vase this Monday.
