hardy begonia looking for a home

These stems of hardy begonia wound up in these vases only because the vases were sitting on the windowsill with water in them, and I needed a home for the stems. Ended up liking the combination of wacky leaves and wacky vases.

 And, just because it was part of this process, here's the place the hardy begonia stems were removed from--a little shelf in my dining room. Very long story, but the hardy begonia stems were in these test tubes before the dahlias were, but I needed to photograph this...and the begonia stems looked to "heavy" in the photo...hence, the shift.

  1. Our dahlias have fairly short stems. Is that usual? It's hard to put them in anything other than small arrangements/vases.
