I'm getting a lot of mileage out of the pretty tulips from Trader Joe's! This composition is cut in half horizontally...which is usually a no-no. But I think it works because of the random sprawl of the flowers and slightly off center placement of the pottery jug. A bit more drama this time around. Me likey.

  1. Your flowers are always luminous, but your vase surfaces (glass, porcelain) are always perfect too! How do you do that?! : )

  8. Me likey too! I love the very rich colors, especially in the blue jug. And it's pleasing how you used all rich colors, the pinks and greens and even the tabletop seem to all be very harmonious in their richness.
