Desktop Auditions …Floral Friday

We’ve been conditioned to think of our computers whenever we see or hear the word desktop. For today, I’m thinking of the actual desktop where I park my computer. I like to place a flower arrangement at the corner opposite the desk-lamp to add a little pizazz.

I have three likely candidates for that important position today. The first one is a spiral of artificial elements rooted in a medium small Shawnee planter pot.

An aged brass goblet vase from South Korea provides an understated place for a generous bunch of ivy and mini-blooms.

A Clydesdale horse is the main attraction of this bright display of poppies.

The other side of the container reveals that this is a souvenir that was sold at an appearance of the horses when they were in town a few years ago.

I like all three arrangements for different reasons. I think I’ll rotate them whenever it’s time to dust the desktop.

The Blue Jay of Happiness ponders a peculiar quip from former Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev. “One sits the whole day at the desk and appetite is standing next to me. ‘Away with you’, I say. But Comrad Appetite does not budge from the spot.”
