cassius basaltic pieces I made many moons ago. The black clay pots have no glaze inside or out. Who knew several years later (2010) I'd learn these pots with the ebony clay are vitrified at cone 4 and hold water quite well. This arrangement has brown eyed susan, chocolate basil and potato vine. Oh there's some stevia in the back. I've filled it so full you can hardly see the round pinch pot.
While I was making the arrangements, all of a sudden I noticed I'd carried a large bumble bee into the kitchen. I scooped him up on a large flower, carried him outside, and gently let him attach to another flower in the garden.
Here's another arrangement placed in a taller pinched vase with curly rush and golden cone flowers. You'd be surprised at the arrangements you can make from plants and flowers in your yard. Even just leaves can make a pleasing display. Please give it a try. I'm off to the market; I hope to sell these pots with the arrangements in them. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
