Spring Planters …Floral Friday

Today is the first full day after the March equinox in the Western Hemisphere. To accent that fact, I assembled four simple arrangements in medium small planter vases.

The first is actually an onyx water tumbler carved in Pakistan. I’ve only used it as a flower container, but washed up, it could be used as tableware. The stone has subtle hints of pink, so I chose daisy flowers of a similar color mixture.

The mid-1950’s vintage chartreuse planter by California Pottery holds a selection of succulents.

Two of my favorite flowers are moss roses and spider mums. These red and red-orange examples warm up the cool white Anchor Hocking glass planter vase.

The marble vase, crafted in India, features a traditionally styled spring assortment of blooms.

The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes Ancient Roman writer, statesman, philosopher, Seneca the Younger. “Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.”

    I’m not really a flower person but I like the vases. I like the Anchor Hocking the best out of this set.
