Note: I linked to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden but just discovered that I never actually posted my vase, so here it is!
. . .
I put this arrangement together earlier last week since it didn't look like there would be much in bloom for Easter.
The small jug has Heuchera leaves that have spent the winter in vases on my kitchen windowsill along with a few stems of a dark Hibiscus. Rounding it out are cuttings from Spirea japonica 'Magic Carpet'.
The stems of Salix britznesis were another willow gift from the same gardening friend who gave me the pink Mt. Aso pussy willows. Both jugs are by local Wisconsin potter Mark Skudlarek.
At the opposite end of the room is a long table with traditional Easter decor.
On the top of an old card catalog from the public library is a grouping that has stayed in place for months. Periodically I add or remove something but mostly I leave it in place because it includes many favorite objects.
The newest addition is this charming little bird vase by ceramicist Eric Bonnin. It was a gift for a recent milestone birthday from my best friend from college. It's holding an Erythronium leaf with two blooms from Pachysandra procumbens.
