Vase from Ladew Topiary Gardens

July 10, 2008

Polo the sign read.  Horse country ahead.  And there was Ladew Topiary Gardens with the topiary hounds on the front lawn waiting for the chase.  Much the same on this Ladew vase.  The huntsman sounding the horn.  He’s sighted the fox.  My prey were the pink roses – just at their height of fullness.  Climbing up the arrangement with yellow stock surrounding them.  Celosia draws the pink out and acts as a filler.  Four greens were used – they also give movement:  variegated pittosporum on the bottom, bupleurum on the top and two types of ferns. By the time the fox is grounded rose petals will be too.
