Daffodils and Euphorbia

Hello spring! Here are some daffodils (confusingly named 'Geranium') combined with foliage from a house plant (begonia) and chartreuse Euphorbia flowers. I particularly love the Euphorbia flowers, from plants Lauren Thompson gave me.

violas in new vases

Can't tell you how much I love these new vases. Like everything about them: their color, their size, their shape. Thank you Marty Ross! Now I want to paint my whole house this lichen green.

daffodils and peace lily

In February, it's harder to find good, fresh foliage than it is to find daffodils, so after I picked these I started trolling for foliage to combine them with. Decided to harvest both flowers and foliage from a houseplant.

oddball colors

I'm crazy about these colors, because they aren't your usual Christmas colors. Apricot-colored vases filled with red, yellow, and orange peppers on red felt. The foliage is fetterbush.

strange september leftovers

Brought these green monkey balls and tomato red carnations home with me from workshop at Shrine Mont. They're now over two weeks old and still looking great on the windowsill.

Dogwood with book

Beautiful book with beautiful dogwood leaves. The leaves were even more beautiful two days ago, but my camera wasn't working then!

Sunflower head (without petals), tomatoes

These things (sunflower head, tomatoes) landed in my kitchen at the same time, and somehow wound up in a windowsill arrangement together. The sunflower head doesn't have any petals, but,with its dramatic green bracts, it was too pretty to throw away. I put it in the vase facing straight up, which made sort of a nest for the tomatoes.
