Three Trios …Floral Friday

Three spiky seed pods mounted on wire stems brushed against my left hand while I searched for some greenery to use on several projects. They had been forgotten but their prickly presence gave me an idea. It would be fun to assemble a few arrangements based upon threes. So, that’s why there are three trio arrangements for this week’s Floral Friday.

A mid-1950s space-age planter contains a succulent, a cacti, and the three spiky pods. The project is basic, simple, and has a minimalist vibe.

To continue the spiky look, I grouped three Hawaiian ‘Ohi’a Le hua flowers with an orchid stem and placed them inside of a weighted department store vase. This is a showy display that will be visually pleasing for a long time.

A cylindrical carved marble vase is the rock-solid foundation for three camellias nestled in greenery. The contrast between heavy and light weights are what this project is all about.

The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes Lao Tzu. “I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures.”
