Planter Projects …Floral Friday

For the first June projects, I decided to go with planters. The arrangement approaches are somewhat conventional. In addition, one of the containers is actually a repurposed electronics artifact. The unifying idea for all three was the desire to create arrangements that will work from late spring throughout all of summer.

The mustard yellow USA pottery “banana” planter is home to green leafy plants. A patch of moss roses provides the highlights.

A chartreuse California pottery planter from the late 1950s contains vintage silk flowers from the 1990s. The finished project inspired me to experiment with still-life lighting, too.

Yellow and orange flowers provide the sparks for the finned cooling can that was used to contain a finals transmission tube for a 100KW FM broadcast transmitter. I hope the reception is clear.


The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes Mark Twain. “It is better to be a young June Bug than an old bird of paradise.”

  1. I’m not sure if it’s just the lighting but I love the middle one. The post is gorgeous! Maggie
