Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share a vase of materials gathered from our gardens.
On a whim I picked up 3 stems of Hypericum at the grocery store yesterday. Hypericum berries make a long-lasting filler for floral arrangements and their peachy color appealed to me.
Using a floral pin to hold the stems I first placed the Hypericum. Next I inserted lavender cactus-form dahlias all around, and ended with sunset-hued zinnias. The zinnias were what I had in mind when I spotted the peach hypericum at the store and the combination went together well. Not only did their colors blend, the berries added a helpful textural contrast to the dahlias and zinnias.
