Here: A fistful of common cuts, a vase and cool water.
When it’s hot out and your kitchen table really needs something cool and happy looking, resist all temptations to over think or over fuss. Instead, grab your clippers and head out on a five minute flower safari. Cut what is fresh right now, arrange it loosely and bring it indoors. Here I’ve placed a simple, “five-minute arrangement” on a favorite and kinda funky candle stand made from a four-foot drill bit. I’ve framed it visually then (for the sake of this photo), in strong afternoon sidelight and against the cool shaded foliage of a contorted filbert tree and a Persicaria “Red Dragon”, as background.
Enjoy . . .
Here’s a playful note and photo in response to the post above. It comes from Leslie Skip Enge, an amazing artist, gardener and fly fishing buddy down in Vancouver, WA. Skip regularly cuts bouquets from his garden for his wife’s office and for their home. Take a peek: Anyone else wanna’ play?
