a large vase that usually has a pedestal or feet
a large pot for making coffee or tea
An urn is a vase, ordinarily covered and without handles that usually has a narrowed neck above a footed pedestal. ...
This is what I consider a greek kind of urn and have had it for years full of the contorted willow. This is NOT my urn theme arrangement simply an example of an urn. You decide what an urn is to you! If you haven't noticed I am flexible
Thats a disease/virus called Fasciate and it is what makes the Crests on celosias and cockscomb. I've not seen it in willows before, but my Agapanthus got it and came out on flat spiral stems with small heads and many flowers!
I'm going on an urn hunt now. I'm sure I've seen one around here. Oops, can't empty out ashes onto the ground...
Thanks Sue -, no wonder I couldn't get them to grow LOL - I'll have to check that out as it sounds "Fasciating"
Now I deliberately stayed away from the final definition "final" being the key word so nobody would "quiver" at the theme, but by all means get the Urn no matter the process. You can always put the ashes back in after theme week.
Traci, you say my mind works in mysterious ways LOL!
Geez, I had trouble finding one urn, and you've got three!
Beautifully arranged Candee and I love store bought flowers! Our supermarket had Liles on special again, and I nearly bought them, but knew I had flowers destined for pruning at home. Is it beginning to warm up in your part of the world, and what type of garden do you have?
This is more of a CH-urn really but the best I can do.
Flowers are Hypoestes (Ribbon Bush), Mexican Salvias, and Spannish Tarragon.
It was pouring rain, so everything was a bit soggy!
I like your urn Sue and those blues look really great in it. Are the blue ones the mexican salvias? Finally had a warm day today in the 80's in the sunshine and a quite warm evening we are having now.
I have a lot of urns that were collected and left to me by my mom, I cherish each and every one.
Oh Lovely.. from both of you! Thankyou for these treats today.
Candee, I like the way you have grouped the three pewter containers on the tray.
Very nice line with the flowers linking together, they are Alsrtomerias, and I think the little white ones at the top are linum? Your 'urn' is a wonderful accessory for the whole display. Very nicely done.
Sue, Love the blue and yellow combo! Ch urn, I like it! Funny, I didn't imagine you would have a fire in Australia! Unusual flowers, love the ribbon bush which gives it height and balances well with the salvia. nice one mate! G'day.
I can't find anything 'urn' or 'ch urn' like here!
Love the grouping and the containers, Candee. Also the height is great. I also love the wet bar in the back ground and the placemats. :^)
Sue, great ch urn. Isn't it nice to be able to pick your flowers from the garden. We had tornado warnings again yesterday, so the wind did a number on my bushes. I bought some flowers from the supermarket, but cannot for the life of me figure out what to do with them. LOL.
I have an urn, but these flowers won't work. Plus, it is HUGE!!
OMG, I am at a loss for words. You are just simply the best, most amazing, unbelievable, fabulous, kind and clever and giving friend! You just took my breath away! Little do you know that I am going to take all those gold coins on my holiday trip and give them to the first needy child that I see so that your generosity touches their life as well!
Terri, you are just such a dear I cannot express in words what your friendship means to me and your smile lights up my world and it was pretty lite up to begin with LOL!
Have a fabulous holiday!
Smiles always friend, how do you do it?
Terri, I was sincerely thinking of you when I took these photos of the urns. I told Steve I gotta take this one for her!
I also saw a lot of corkscrew willow being used at this time of year, sprayed gold so now I have even more ideas, fewer braincells and even less time to do anythin LOL!
So glad you remembered me. LOL! They are beautiful urn vases, a bit scary up there on that ledge though! or was there glass keeping them from falling down?
Good to hear you have more ideas for 2009 dear! Look forward to those in the new year !
