Thanks for the imaginative description Candee!

Glad you like it Sally, Thanks! I don't like the dark colours very much and think it's horrible... LoL!
but, still , it's worth sharing good and not so good arrangements I think!

Been quite hot and humid here elle, but can't complain as this is the first of really hot summer weather that we have had. We are going down to the eastern shore this weekend to visit Tasha, Mike and Abygail and will likely spend Saturday at the beach, I'll stick a toe in the ocean for you!

Sure appears to be the same thing. I was just sitting there with the vase with the dahlias on my pottin table cause they broke off in the storm and then glanced over and saw the caladium and noticed the colors and then voila it seemed perfect. Thanks.

How about underwater leaves - I tell you these caladium leaves have been in this jug for 3 weeks now, all I do is change the water every few days and the zinnias last at least 10-12 days and then I replace them. This is a record for life expectancy of an arrangement at our home.

No flowers in the water in this one, just my black elephant ear and some zinnias and yes more of the foliage from bearded iris. I really don't like bearded iris, but love the fan leaves.

Don't worry about what there is to do there are always things to do, just get better and when you are you can take it one thing at a time.

Right now all of us I think on the east coast are missing it right along with you as we are all in the rain, frost and winter to come season. I know it isn't the same cause we aren't the ones laid up, but if it helps any we aren't doing much with plants this day either. So perhaps by the time we are again you will be completely recuped and we can all play together!!!
Keep the joy and get well soon. Stop by the cafe if you get a chance and ask Fritz to fix you up a nice hot toddy and exotic meal!
