i’m back…with a new monday vase

My friend Susan B gave me this rustic metal tray filled with five vases.

What fun it has been, cruising the garden in search of just the right materials. Here we have chive blossoms, sprigs of Euphorbia ‘Fen’s Ruby’, Geum ‘Totally Tangerine’ and an Iris that shall remain nameless.

Taking a break from working at Joy Creek for health reasons is a sad state of affairs, but let’s look on the bright side. I can get back to blogging a bit more and participating in Cathy’s In a Vase on Monday meme.

Here’s the last bouquet I did for Joy Creek, where bouquets come together nearly effortlessly, given the wealth of materials to work with.

  1. We’ve missed you ! I hope you are having a good rest and getting healthy . That is a lovely metal tray and vase setup , and I love purple and orange..

  2. Oh, sorry to hear health is not so good. Get well soon, so we can go back to missing your beautiful arrangements again.

    Well done on that last one, excellent shapes!

    • More garden time and reading time are pretty good compensation for not feeling great. I expect to be all patched up and ready to roll by next gardening cycle.

  3. After your comment on my post yesterday I got to thinking about just how long since your blog had been updated. So while I am thrilled to see a new post (and I am in love with that new vase thingy!!!) I am now worried about you. Health problems requiring you to stay home from JC? I hope you’ve got this one covered but let me know if you need anything. Sending all the positive vibes your way…

  4. Have missed you too. Sorry you’re dealing with health issues Ricki. I adore the 5-vase wonder–so clever. And that second arrangement is great also.

  5. So glad to see you again but hope you’re patched up and well again very soon. Love the arrangement in your vase/tray gift. What a great color combination! Sending you love and healing vibes.
