same stuff, different vase

This is the same green and gold (Chrysoganum) I used earlier in a test tube vase (now with some additional sprigs). This was fun to do because 1) it was easy and 2) I learned something about the plant material. This little yellow-flowering groundcover is almost a weed, but, doing this tiny arrangement, I learned the flowering stems are VERY malleable. I wanted them to droop and drape a little more than they did naturally, so I just massaged them with my hand a little to get them to present themselves where I wanted them. They were SO responsive!
