In a Vase on Monday-Go Big or Go Home

When the arrangement is as big as the lamp..

Not a hotel lobby arrangement but still, much bigger than my usual ....It bothered me that the lamp and the flowers were so similar in size , so I moved this vase elsewhere.

 My experiment this week was the Cotinus. Never used in a vase -for some reason I assumed it would not hold up. Where do these ideas come from ? So far it is holding it's own .

 The vase is Bauer , a  chartreuse high gloss probably from the 1950's. It's 12 inches tall so I can ony use it if I have very long stemmed ingredients. I also have the 8" version of this vase.

 Our thanks to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for this weekly vase fest !
