This little copper tea kettle sits atop our kitchen cabinets, all but forgotten. Encouraged by the way the flowers held up in a copper vase a few weeks ago, I decided to press it into service. I liked the patina, so I washed it but skipped the polishing. The garden yielded up two kinds of snapdragons and Dahlia ‘Groovy’.
Some culinary sage formed a nice base to hold flowers in place and a few fruits from Cornus kousa ‘China Girl’ provide the finishing touch.
The pot’s handle props the flowers up on one side, while on the other they drape over the edge.
