stacked cup topiary

I did an arrangement in stacked plastic cups a year or so ago, but the photo was bad, and I needed to replace that photo (for a publisher) today. So I tried it again. I know re-creating an arrangement is impossible, but, still, I tried. Last year this was all so spontaneous (the cups had been on the counter waiting to be washed, the coreopsis handy from another arrangement). But this time I had to deliberately stack the cups and use marigolds (since I had no coreopsis) instead. Here's the result:

Trying to make this more like the original photo, I added tickseed sunflowers, but it seems I've wound up with something entirely different!
