It's been pretty lily-centric around here for the last few weeks, bought and gifted flowers everywhere. They were dropping petals and turning brown though, so it was time to come up with something different. Our temperatures are SIZZLING for the next week so I cut some flowers, I can enjoy them in the cool house and they'll (hopefully) last longer than they would outside.
The Agave attenuata card was my birthday card from Andrew, I'm still quite in love with it so it's part of the table centerpiece too.
In the chartreuse vase are Crocosmia blooms and a Fatsia japonica 'Variegata' (Camouflage) leaf.
The Crocosmia flowers all opened at once, practically over night. That's unusual...
The tall white vase has a mix of things. I think it works, others might think it a little much.
I finally cut a few of my seed-grown Moluccella laevis, they smell so good! Light and a little minty, very refreshing.
A few of the Sarracenia pitchers bent and we getting caught on my shirt when I maneuvered around to water. I cut them too.
Now they're all keeping each other company...
I hope I don't regret not cutting all the Moluccella laevis. I'm not sure how they'll hold up to the heat in the driveway stock-tanks.
The back of the tall arrangement got a couple of Syneilesis aconitifolia, another one bent outside (I think the hose is to blame).
The gallery wall next to the dining table got a couple of new additions last week, ones I haven't had a chance to frame yet.
Andrew spotted these two prints when we were in Austin, TX, in May and bought them for my birthday. Ananassa sativa variegata (variegated pineapple)...
And Maranta vittata (aka Calathea elliptica).
I also scored some fabulous vintage postage stamps...
