A month or so ago, I picked this big vase out of the trash pile. It had been broken but I covered the broken edge with duct tape and used it as my outdoor vase.
Richard cut these and brought them to me. He was calling them cardoons. Anyway, each stem was heavy. I thought about that when I put them in the vase. But the vase is pretty heavy too. I should have listened to the little warning in my head. A week or so later, the wind caught them (or maybe an evil cat) anyway, tipped the vase and broke it to many, many pieces.
So now I have only this smaller green vase. Too bad, I was kind of enjoying making larger arrangements.
Even in the heat and with no water the cardoons still look pretty good.
Another week, another arrangement. Flowers from the hostas.
