DOES THIS VASE.............

............make my bud look too big?  Just kidding, but I couldn't hold back.

Last summer I posted a collection of images meant to entice your bud vase creativity.  One year later, I'm doing it again.  I often playfully gravitate to my vegetable garden when creating fresh cut arrangements.

The smell of cilantro......... love it, or hate it?  I find it a curious olfactory trigger, and rather peculiar tasting, too.  Yet, I always come back for more.  No matter, its delicate little blossoms add charm to any vessel.

I have a fascination with root crop vegetables.  Under water they portray a specimen-like quality, straight out of a science lab.

The allium family is another one that intrigues me.  Anything pompom-like will do.

 Of course, cheery floral bunches are a must, too.  Arrangements made using a variety of plant material makes for a casual display, perfect for cottage-style homes.

What do you think of my layering of dishes underneath the vase?  Drag some of yours out of the cupboard and give it a try.

I hope you, too, are playfully enjoying your vegetable and flower garden.

    1. Thank you for visiting, Jennifer. I'm glad you like the addition of the plates. They are my most favored of all the oddball ones lurking around my home:)
