June 18, 2012 -- red hot pokers, etc., then white hydrangeas

Well, this first arrangement was fun. I did it while I was screwing up my courage to attempt using hydrangeas again. It includes red hot pokers, lavender bee balm, pink sweet peas, feverfew, and a couple of yellow coreopsis.

On to the hydrageas. First I picked some white ones, cut their stems really short, and dropped them into cereal bowls.

They actually look more like cauliflower heads than hydrangeas! Just to clean up the counter, I added some red tomatoes to the windowsill, and that helped to jazz this up a bit, but I'm beginning to think hydrangeas are just too formal for me. Maybe I'll try yet again tomorrow.
