It’s May Day and a progressive force underlies the spirit of the day. I was afraid there might be a city ordinance prohibiting May Poles on private lawns, so I settled for a sense of contemporary design and pots of flowers, instead.
I sense a resurgence of Tiki culture simmering within the cultural fire in certain bohemian enclaves these days. A handful of steamy, tropical based blooms expresses this energy well.
The esprit and exuberance of pink bursts forth from a 1970s vintage centerpiece planter from Taiwan. There’s nothing subtle about the almost shocking pink aura of this arrangement.
Is it one step backwards and two steps ahead, or two steps forward and one step back? The backwards motion is towards the 1950s with a space-age inspired contemporary department store vase. We move forward with another tropical inspired splash of vibrant florals and greenery.
I hope you enjoy a positive, energetic new month.
