Early March Experiments …Floral Friday

A few handsfull of wire vine are the inspiration for today’s creations.  I wanted to find out if the vine would make a good foundation and mechanical for some avant garde arrangements.

For the first try, a vintage McCoy planter was used to hold spherical shapes of a similar yellow color along with a section of dark red blooms and spheres. The result is a distinctive layered appearance.

The glaze is seriously crazed on this large souvenir mug so it’s no longer safe to use for coffee.  Instead of tossing it in the trash, why not use it for a project? The wire vine worked out very well in this whimsical collection of plants and shapes.

A large department store contemporary planter is a good home for some small evergreens and accents.  Again, the vine worked to my advantage.

mini-moiThe Blue Jay of Happiness likes this thought from Marcus Aurelius: “We ought to do good to others as simply as a horse runs, or a bee makes honey, or a vine bears grapes season after season without thinking of the grapes it has borne.”
