wee daffodils

Must be a childhood thing. The wee daffodils have always been my favorites.

fancy Ornithagalum

This little flower was leftover from a much larger arrangement I did on February 12, so it's over 10 days old. Couldn't toss it though, because this little piece is still so pretty. The photo is out of focus because I was too tired to go get my tripod. Early gardening fatigue!

February peaches, artichoke, and weathered hellebore leaves

This arrangement evolved in response to the colors in a scarf I seldom wear but I've always loved. The rock-hard peaches and artichoke came from the grocery store, the maroon carnations from the florist, the weathered hellebore leaves and the green hellebore leaves from the garden. The most enjoyable part of making this was using the nearly-dead hellebore leaves, because I had them in my hand ready to throw them away when I realized they were the "weathered brown" I was looking for!

Here's the scarf.
