|Stock cut with the stems cut short and arranged in a silver wine bottle holder using a frog, and two pots of tulips, all from Trader Joe's|
|Too cold for tulips! Not to mention that the ground squirrels dig them all up.|
These flowers were purchased because I hosted a Vestry Retreat for the St. Mark's vestry on Saturday. My Mama always used flowers when entertaining, and although I never need an excuse to have flowers in the house, I never have a party without flowers.
And just for a little contrast here are some flowers from Belize:
|At a restaurant.|
|Arranged in a slice of bamboo to echo the chairs made of bamboo.|
|New Mexico grown orchid at my house|
|Rare black orchid grown by Belize poet who shared this with me when he saw I was taking photographs of flowers near his home.|
