April Projects …Floral Friday

April in the Great Plains of North America has radical weather shifts. One day it may be a mild 70-degrees Fahrenheit, the next could be 17-degrees. Sunny one day, snow the next, sunny again, then rain showers.

I’ve been eager to begin outdoor projects, but they require two or more consecutive days of mild, dry weather. So indoor projects will continue to dominate my project plans for awhile longer. Floral projects are year-around, so they are already scheduled this month by default.

Today, I have three arrangements that have been inspired by the tropics. A blue, fire-glazed cylinder vase from Japan contains an array of large and small flowers. They’re almost aggressive.

Vibrancy rises to another level with the reds and pinks staged within the vintage silver-glazed USA Pottery pitcher vase. The stargazer is accompanied by glads, poppies, and orchids for an optimistic statement.

Three birds of paradise roost within a department store vase. The combination brings a vibrant, contemporary note to my living space.

The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes journalist and writer, Christopher Morley. “April prepares her green traffic light and the world thinks Go.”

  1. Very striking displays, in design and in color. Nothing “usual” about them.
