Tall And Dry …Floral Friday

Spring cleaning has arrived so it’s time again to cull the supply bins.  There have been several items waiting to be used, but have been put on hold for one reason or another.  Dry stems have accumulated over the past couple of years.  They needed to be used so dust doesn’t become a problem.

Likewise, some tall containers have been pushed aside for quite awhile. They needed to be cleaned up to make them presentable again.  Their dimensions are perfect for tall, dry plants.

A vintage heavy glass soda straw jar lost its dispenser top many years ago and has been waiting to be repurposed. The leftovers from three hobby shop assortments are utilized in this basic, simple arrangement.

An avocado green Floraline vase harmonizes with the predominantly green elements of this more stylized arrangement of grasses.  The vertical emphasis remains.
