Hello everyone and welcome to a wet Bank Holiday in the UK. We are hoping it might improve as the day goes on! We did go out and make the most of Saturday's sunshine. Safe to say the drought is over and the water tanks are full.
Here is a vase I made for a friend. It was to go on this hall table so I made it quite large to have impact.
There is some birch and Cotoneaster foliage, Sedum at the green stage, Vanilla Ice sunflowers and some other sunflower, Amaranthus, Nicotiana 'Lime Green' and Dahlia 'Karma Naomi'.
It's quite open and airy, the look I was going for and not symmetrical but not imbalanced I didn't think.
The critique was:
MrC- It's lopsided
Me - That's the look
MrC- But will people know it's the look or just think it's lopsided?
My friend liked it so that's what counts.
Visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for In a Vase on Monday.
