Grey skies and cool temperatures provide a backdrop for complex mind states. This weather condition is not a very popular one. I argue that a string of cloudy skies provides more of a boost to creative efforts than do sunny days.
The week began with drippy weather that negatively affected my mood. It was again time to experiment with floral design. I had no overall theme in mind, only freedom of play.
A vintage vase inspired by ancient Greece becomes the base for a mathematical display. In this case, multiples of three are used, consciously.
A handful of unruly echinacea provide the cure for a rigid, formal lineup of owls. This vintage planter, depicting three owls perched on a log has two openings to work with. Swedish ivy sprouts from the log while the purple flowers grab the highlights.
The grey skies became even darker as drizzle and rain dripped all around. I had to bring out sunny day colors. Bold sunflowers among a bunch of chrysanthemums burst forth from a vintage sky blue McCoy vase. The color combination instantly elevated my mood.
