December 29, 2011

What interested me here were the chartreuse leaves. I got back late from NY with little energy for windowsill arranging and decided to use only materials already in the house. I had used these geranium leaves in an arrangement before Christmas, and they were looking pretty shot, until I realized that "shot" in this case meant they had turned chartreuse green--a leaf color I LOVE in arrangements. So I decided to put them center stage. The chartreuse geranium leaves are combined here in a vanilla bottle with one red geranium blossom. A vanilla bottle makes a great vase for windowsill arranging because its base is so narrow.
