In A Vase On Monday—August Mingle (Take Two)

In A Vase On Monday - August Mingle

In A Vase On Monday – August Mingle

Yesterday’s In A Vase On Monday was completed too late to photograph the flowers in natural light. This afternoon I set up the arrangement on the sunny back porch and made a few more images.

I wanted to include them today for my own record because the colors are so much more vibrant and truer to life than I was able to capture indoors last night under artificial light. The rich hues of Salvia guaranitica ‘Black and Blue’ are especially more obvious and in general, the natural light makes it much easier to see all of the flowers in detail.

    The more I see it, the more I like that Salvia ‘Black and Blue’. Apparently it can grow to well over 5 feet here.. So I will need to be careful where I put it!

    the light makes all the difference which is why I take my arrangements outside to photograph if I can. Yours looks even more stunning in natural light, and yes the Salvia calls to me more and more.

      The salvia color is accurate in these photos. The salvia has been dropping lots of petals but despite that it seems to be holding up in the arrangement.
