June 27, 2011---poker mix

So here are yesterday's flowers "rearranged." I'm going to give them away this afternoon, so I needed a trowaway container. Where is one of those glass florist vases when you need one?! I could find nothing, so finally I threw away the last dregs of pretzels in an UTZ Poker Mix container, cut off the top half of it, and used it as my vase.  As I worked on this, I thought the arrangement wasn't much different from the Poker Mix---dribs and drabs of leftover materials that weren't going to result in anything of very high quality even when you combined them. But the arrangement turned out better than I might have hoped. It includes magenta celosia and orange cosmos weeded out of Flower Camp paths yesterday, pretty magenta snapdragons (I'm deciding they're easier to grow than I thought), a few stems of clary sage, a few stems of perennial sweet pea, two stems of yellow-flowering lismachia (I think that's its name), and some really pretty mauvy pink flowering tobacco, which you can't really see in the photo.  That should release its fragrance indoors tonight, and I hope it will waft around nursing home room like a dream, bringing my friend joy from he knows not where. 

Below is view through the bottom of the "vase." I love 1) the mix of green stems and magenta celosia stems and 2) the fact that you can see the TZ inscribed on the plastic. That's what's left of the UTZ inscription!
