In A Vase On Monday – Hydrangea & Potpourri

Eliza Waters

img_7130Collected in October, these dried hydrangea (H. paniculata) look as fresh as the day I picked them. Arrange and forget, what can be easier? Eventually, they will lose their color and fade once humidity returns in late spring and early summer.

Meanwhile, in a pretty grape-motif pitcher, they dress up the coffee table, next to a brass vase of cuttings of snake plant (Sansevieria hyacinthoides) and a worn-smooth, quartz ‘worry stone’ picked out of the stream.

Cathy at Rambling In the Garden, hosts a weekly meme to showcase arrangements created from our gardens, indoor or out. Wander over to see what gardeners all over the world are arranging this week.
