After many days of rain, finally today we were able to enjoy a bright sunny weather outside. This morning and while strolling through my garden and watching in amazement how fast some of the flowers have grown, the idea of having a small portion of this view struck me! Because my interest has always being of bringing some of those instances of the outdoors inside, today I cut some simple flowers from my garden to create small but sweet arrangements.
Small white roses, Diamond Frost Euphorbia, Dwarf Pentas and some Lemon Grass leaves (all from my local The Home Depot) were the cuts that I “borrowed” from my garden. I made small mixed arrangements and placed them in water; one inside a galvanized lantern over our dinning table (find a similar lantern here) and the other inside a candle holder (from BHG at Walmart).
|After adding some fern leaves to the candle holder, I placed the small vase with the flower arrangement inside and added water to keep the ferns fresh for a longer time.|
