I have definitely fallen behind on these Monday posts, though not on actual bouquets. I've been cutting flowers continuously and putting arrangements throughout the house. But our hot weather and abundant rainfall have the garden exploding — especially with weeds. So I've let the photos slide while I try to keep up with the weeds.
I splurged recently on a group of vases to add to my collection. They're made by Heath Ceramics and are quite small, only 3 inches in diameter and just over 4 inches high (7.62 cm x 10.16 cm). As the company says, "the Heath lover can never have too many bud vases". The company's current palette is subtle and the containers have a matte sheen rather than glossy shine. And they just added the wonderful little speckled style this summer (below and in the center above).
I've been using them to showcase foliage rather than flowers. The group usually is resting on an irregular slab of green marble in the center of the dining room table. But I brought them outside to photograph them.
