In A Vase On Monday – Ikebana With Spider Lily

We’re still in the throes of health issues but finally back home. A quick skip around the garden today yielded some nice flowers but I had only a few minutes to arrange them. I knew I wanted a tower of spider lilies and the other flowers fell in line.

    It’s hard to find flowers as dramatic as dahlias but I think the Lycoris bested them by a mile. Nicely crafted too, Susie. I hope being home gives both you and your husband an opportunity to get the rest that’s so difficult to find in medical facilities. Best wishes.

      Kris, I was afraid the dahlias would take over the spotlight but the spider lilies do hold their own pretty well, especially in person. Looking forward to that rest–thanks!

    Lycoris looks like it is wearing fake eyelashes. You know, now that I think of it, I have never grown it! I grew related flowers, including Nerene, but somehow missed trying Lycoris. I really should try it, particularly since I see neighbors growing it.

    Those spider lilies are quite something Susie! And a gorgeous dahlia too. I love those rich colours. Hope life returns to some kind of normality now your husband is home. Best wishes to you both for some peace and calm.

    Oh my goodness, they look even better in a vase like this, especially setting them at a height above the other blooms – wonderful! And I am so pleased your husband is at least back home now (did you stay with him in rehab?) and really hope he makes good progress. Thinking of you, and sending healing energies

    Love the Spider Lilies with the Angelonia, wonderful color contrast. Glad you are home, progress! Sending healing thoughts. Do the lilies last in a vase? It is great to see them at eye level.
