red vase, green flowers

This gray day seemed to demand a bright arrangement. The green flowers are Helleborus foetidus (stinking hellebore). This is actually just one big hunk of them--all  the flowers are on the same fat stem. They've been blooming for a month or so, but only now are their big blooms trying to stretch upward. Give them a day or so of warmer weather and sunshine and they'll be glorious. For movement, I added a couple of pieces of variegated ivy in this arrangement.

  1. Greenery and color. Just what I needed to see at this moment!
