It’s been raining pretty hard, so this Monday’s vase was assembled quickly. I used a little bit of everything and a strawberry pot from a long forgotten corner:
I filled the pot with Euphorbia tirucalli (pencil cactus) and Sansevieria trifasciata (snake plant) before inserting a few stems of Iris domestica (blackberry lily,) Ruellia tweediana (Mexican petunia,) and Verbena bonariensis (purple top/vervain.)
For the side pockets, I chopped a few heads of Aloe ciliaris to help anchor the Passiflora incense flowers. Just before taking pictures I remembered the “filler/spiller/thriller” rule and included a few mandevilla tendrils to “wing out” the sides.
I was pleased with the outcome but Clarisse was unimpressed: she slept through all my efforts AND the drizzle. 😉
Until next time…
