A garage sale yielded a little collection of blue and white vases. I needed to cut some of the first Dahlias ‘Groovy’ so they’ll keep pumping out new flowers. Same for the deep red snapdragons, so my theme was set.
The square vase is a mere 3″ to a side and as tall. Short stems of Dahlias and snaps filled it up in no time.
A little taller with a narrower neck, this vase got a couple of longer stemmed snaps and the last of the red Gladiolus. I like the way the lacy Queen Anne’s Lace shows up against the reds.
Finally, a small cylinder completes the trio. More Queen Anne’s Lace and a couple stems of Fuchsia ‘Golden Gate’ have an airier look but share the same color scheme. I’m happy to report that last week’s bouquet, in the copper vase, fared well. It has lasted as long as most and better than some, so I’ll be using that vase again with no reservations. Be sure to check out Cathy (Rambling in the Garden) to see hers and others’ vases this Monday.
