false lupine, iris, asparagus, etc.

This was an attempt to do something simple that wound up complicated. I wanted to do an arrangement in this pretty little blue vase but the first thing I tried--yellow wood poppy flowers--didn't suit me. I kept trying and trying and wound up with way more stems in this vase than seemed called for. Included are yellow false lupine (Thermopsis), a small, pale blue bearded iris flower, some English comfrey flowers, some asparagus spears, and a couple of ajuga flowers. I'd have thrown the kitchen sink in if there had been room! The most fun part of doing this arrangement was watching the light play on it as the wind moved branches outside the window.
