Do you have any to share, please?
Photos of Glads in the house
I don't have any of my own (I will this summer!), but there's a simple glad arrangement here I like. I like them done simply like this. Its the 3rd down:
In the arrangement in the link above, they've used pittisporum clustered at the bottom of the vase. Not only does that give some visual "weight" that gives balance so the whole does not look top heavy, but it provides a mechanism to hold the stems upright. Any leathery foliage plant you have growing will work.
Here's a link with some good tips about harvesting and processing cut glads:
Ooooohh, here's a simple, but dramatic one!
And if you're feeling really adventurous, make one of these!
This is a creative display:
Hmmm......as is this one:
Sweet and simple:
I like this one. This would be easy for a novice, as the stems are all just clustered upright. You can use any kind of greenery at the bottom, and stones, marbles, fruit, shells, or Christmas balls could be used to fill the bowl.
Something like this would be nice to set in front of a hearth in summer.
We should all be able to fill a vase similar to this in summer!
JanetS, with all the glads you've ordered, I expect to see something like this from you this summer, lol!
Laura, with your passion for purple, I expect something like this from you! :)
Neal I can see you will be having fun this summer!
I love the one in the blue and white jug, with blue amongst the glads, it looks like lavender.
I love that blue and white container too; would love to get my hands on something similar. I can't tell if the blue flower is lavender or salvia of some kind.
I'm excited to see some of the dainty, airy varieties many of us have ordered in arrangements for the home!
Neal, you've outdown yourself! I'll enjoy browsing all these photos, and eventually seeing what you do with glads.
Every year at our Mineapolis Home and Garden Show, there are about 40 or so very creative arangements made by local designers. Most do not even use conventional vases. There is a judging, but little if any financial reward. This year, the show administration declined to pay for the materials, and every designer opted not to display. A very unfortunate matter.
It certainly is! I hope public dismay and disappointment will reverse the situation before too long, or at least before next year! Tsk. Is it public funding? Letters and phone calls could help.
No, it's not publicly funded. But it has to be a pittance in the budget of the largest home and garden show in the state.
G-S, I loved all the glad arrangements you posted. I always have cut glads in the house in season, usually with just one filler.
I hadn't seen them-just what I needed on this gloomy morning. Your place must be so amazing, Janet.
