The magenta peonies silently dropped their petals during the night.
Yellow pollen-laden stamens lay like gold dust on the French linen. . . . .
. . . . .however the always long lasting alstroemeria will last another weekend.
I shortened the stems, grabbed a smaller pitcher, poured in fresh water
and made a quick trip around the garden for greenery.
A hosta leaf, a sprig of camellia leaves, trailing variegated ivy,
and some gone-to-seed parsley for height.
Floral fun has made another lovely table decoration
for quite a few more days.
These long lasting flowers come in many colors, all lovely, however I really think
the white ones with the delicate magenta and yellow markings are my favorite.
Thank you for all the generous comments regarding the recent dresser re-do HERE.
I really enjoy this piece of useful furniture. . . . . . . and yes, already a change from
two days ago. I added one of my display domes containing a Wedgwood fluted vase
(which matches the demitasse set), standing on an small antique hand mirror, and
containing hand-made paper flowers.
Who knows what may change next week!
Enjoy your weekend.
