But one thing I want to do is put A LOT of unique floral arrangements in the various rooms. I am not very good at this sort of thing, but I have been looking at a lot of pictures and have some ideas using grasses and curly twig willow and the like. I want some really simple arrangements and some to be a bit more elaborate, but nothing like you would get from a florist. I also want to use all materials from my own gardens (I have more foliage than flowers).
Right now, I am not really doing any of the arrangements, of course, but rather cutting some things and putting them in water to see how and how long they will hold up. I WOULD really appreciate any of you sharing photos and/or ideas.
I cut a couple of sprigs of my "My Angel" clematis today and put them in this little monkey "vase." Here's the picture.
