The same visit when Peter (the Outlaw) brought the hot pink Bougainvillea, which I've absolutely loved this summer, he also brought this charming Saguaro...
It's intended purpose appears to be as a potpourri diffuser, but we've just been enjoying it as a decorative item, complete with those jaunty bumps and carved out holes like the desert birds do to real saguaros.
Then one day it hit me. It's true calling is to be used as a flower frog!!! The Saguaro could be placed in a shallow dish full of water (the bottom is open) and long stemmed-flowers pushed through the holes, are you with me?
Since I wanted to trim the flowers on the Ligularia (I don't care for them) I figured they'd make a suitable test.
What do you think?
Okay, it's a lot silly — but still — don't be surprised if it turns up again some Monday! Visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for links to bloggers making real arrangements today...
