Actually, I’ve had this vase for years but have never before pressed it into service to hold an arrangement. If you look closely, you can see that the candle holders are carved ebony in an oriental style. I don’t know my Asian styles, so it’s probably from some completely different region than the writing on the vase.
The yellow edging on the tiny leaves of Lonicera nitida ‘Baggsen’s Gold’ picks up the yellow of the Forsythia and daffodils.
It’s nice to have evergreens bulking up to the point where I can snip a few branches here and there.
Forsythia is one of the few things that will droop like this, so I had to jump on it. There’s more, much more, over at (Rambling in the Garden), where Cathy hosts In a Vase on Monday every week.
