Might as well put some of those downed limbs to work, so into the cut glass rose bowl went some of the ‘Thunderhead” pine, giant sequoia, Ozothamnus and Cotoneaster with a few red berries. The Euonymous fared pretty well but I added a branch of it to lighten things up a bit.
As you can see, the back side is pretty dark but I like the way the “candles” of the pine and the silvery Ozothamnus pick up the silvery tones of reflected light off the vase.
I’ll be glad when the spring ephemerals start showing up and I can move away from this red and green theme but for the dead of winter, this is not half bad. See what’s finding its way into other vases this week by visiting Cathy at Rambling in the Garden…spring seems a lot closer in some parts of the world.
They are such rich deep greens and the textures are lovely.
My mom was such a nut for green that I went through a phase where I studiously avoided it. Glad I’m over that.
Evergreen arrangements are so pretty and yours is exceptionally so.
Why, Thank You, sir!
It is a pretty combination, Rickii. Waste not, want not!
My sentiments exactly…gotta look on the bright side.
It’s a very pretty mix and shows up beautifully against the table runner. However, I hope spring makes its arrival up your way soon. I heard there might be another winter storm making its way though the PNW – will that hit your area?
We’re girding ourselves, while hoping for the best.
Very nice. You’re very creative with these winter arrangements. I need to try again with the limited elements at my disposal in the cold landscape. Berries…evergreens…colorful stems. Lovely!
This winter has been a bigger challenge than most.
Oh nice! I have to say that while you might be tired of winter foliage offerings, I think those green and silver tones are just marvelous!
I never really tire of them but a wee bit of color seems long overdue.
The silvery candles are fresh for me
I love the candles so I rarely break them off to control growth. Could have something to do with the branches breaking (overextended).
