January Floral Medley

Behold the bounty of Grandma's and Mom's gardens in January: cymbidium orchids, manzanita, crown of thorn, rabbit's foot fern, and Pacific madrone. It's not a combination of flowers or colors I would typically choose to put together, but since the gardens suggested it I went out on a limb . . . and am pleased with the outcome.

I love working with foraged materials. They keep things exciting by encouraging me to attempt more unusual palettes and challenging compositions. The resulting arrangements are interesting and tangible little snapshots of the day.
