A melange of color and texture that gets your attention and holds it for a few beats. When I see this arrangement, my brain ping-pongs around these thoughts:
- How can the colors of that hydrangea be so delicate? Pale celery green and puff pink together is perfect.
- Why don't they make more pretty china canisters - clear plastic Oxo containers are just not beautiful.
- This grouping would translate beautifully to fabric. Where is Laura Ashley when I need her?
- I have to plant bellflower and more yarrow next year (then I write that in the Notes portion under May in my 2014 calendar.)
Looking at beautiful things is good for you. Making a bouquet and seeing it every time you walk into the family room is even better.
