Last week’s eggplants have given way to six drinking cups, each filled with water nestled in the Duryea’s Satin Gloss Starch box. I’ve had this wooden box for so long I don’t remember where I found it. Probably at one of those ‘antique’ malls that are huge resale shops, not too long on the antique, but long on the used and old….much more my $tyle.
These gorgeous days languidly rolling out at the end of summer bring delightful mixed bouquets at the local farmer’s markets. Oranges, yellow and cream in zinnias, cockscomb and tithonia make up this pair.
Now this bunch with its strident yellows with pink makes me think of supermarket bunches put together by the color-scheme-challenged. Yellow and pink is a tough scheme to pull off. The yellows of zinnia and celosia do nothing for the pink zinnias and blue ageratum.
Two bunches of orange purple and one bunch of orange pink sitting on the floor for a long cool drink of water. Most of these summer flowers are not too happy in Oasis and are best arranged in cool water.
