The springtime creative urge takes various directions today. They go from slender to bulky to nostalgic within this short post.
A small, fine, vintage vase, which might have been made by Hull, holds a spray of grasslike forms. It’s simple, clean, and eclectic, all at once.
The bulky pot is actually meant for hanging, but the three holes blend in well enough to be overlooked. This one could cause minor damage if it fell because the pot is quite substantial. I like the large, Mexican details. An assertive arrangement is perfect in this context.
A small, 1950s Shawnee pot inspires a mid-20th century generous styling of a variety of blooms. These are shapes and colors I remember from childhood.
The Blue Jay of Happiness recalls this verse from Thomas Carlyle: “Long stormy spring-time, wet contentious April, winter chilling the lap of very May; but at length the season of summer does come.”
