Flowers et al

I love collections, groupings etc, so this shouldn't have come as such a revelation, but it was. I have a new floral arranging manifesto - that vessels can and should be arranged too. I ended up making 5 smaller bouquets today, intending to bring a little color to a variety of spots around the house. But this collection of different flowers and vases is so much greater than the sum of its parts. I can't stop staring at it! So all 5 bouquets will stay together like this in one lush cacophonous display. Wouldn't it make a great centerpiece? I'll definitely be doing more multi-vase arrangements as long as the roof keeps blooming. As if I needed another excuse to hunt antique ink bottles and bud vases.
