I decided that it was time to use a vase that was as much a part of the composition as the plant material. This low glass vase by Madison artist Richard Jones of Studio Paran is embellished with a design of silvery leaves of grass. It also has a small kenzan glued into it making it suitable for arrangements with vertical elements that need to be held in place.
This display relies on leaves rather than flowers for effect, including Iris germanica, Salix 'Golden Curls , Euphorbia dulchis 'Chameleon,' and Heucherella 'Alabama Sunrise.'
We have not yet had a killing frost in the city and the low temperatures this week don't look too low. So I expect to have at least another week to fill a vase for this meme. To see what other gardeners have put in their vases today, visit Rambling in the Garden.
