May 21, 2013 -- delicate flowers

I actually did this arrangement yesterday but forgot to post it. It started with the delicate blue forget-me-nots, which I wanted to arrange in an elegant little cut glass container, but I couldn't find one (!), so I used this wine glass instead. Then I started adding other diminutive things: tiny red poppies, hawkweed flowers, Chinese temple bells. After I took this photo, I also added some buttercups. 

The most stunning thing in this arrangement is the little red poppies, which are so delicate many of them had lost their petals by the time I got them in the house. If you look carefully, though, you can see that one is still in bud and it opened later in the day.
