It's that time of year.
For some reason in August I get the urge to make flower arrangements. (It would be nicer if the urge occurred during July when I had more flowers.)
I threw in a load of laundry when I got home from work and went out to gather the flowers. I had pretty slim pickin's today:
I love that sunflower cup/saucer vase. It actually came from a florist (has telefloral on the markings on the back). I picked it up at a garage sale years ago.
Who, I ask, would get rid of such a treasure?
It has its own little holder for the plate and the cup.
Perfect for a yellow bouquet. Since I was using all yellow, I decided to use sprigs of my 'Golden Privet' shrub for the filler.
Here is what I did with it:
I had to rummage around the deck clipping tiny little fill-in flowers (the orange mini zinnias).
I used all the remaining flowers to fill the little green vase, but it was a tad sparse.
So I went off and cut a few more privet sprigs.
I really wanted a bit of blue in this one. I have some blue salvia on the deck, but I didn't want to cut it down. I finally decided I could spare 5 spikes of it.
It was just what I needed to finish this one.
By the time the laundry was washed (1/2 hr), I had two new arrangements.
Kerri, do you recognize these flowers?
Yesterday Kerri posted about her 'Gloden Glow' flowers, which I believe are the same as the one right in the middle (bottom) in this bouquet.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
