Only in Southern California — or perhaps Hawaii or similar? — can one have such a Holiday arrangement. Oh my, I first typed “arranglement” — isn’t that perfect? We were doing some path-trimming around our teensy yard, and arrangled these from the large bird-of-paradise shrubs.
The container is one of an asymmetrical pair of lidded jars that are too large to use on a counter top, and since we don’t store quantities of cooking oil or grains, I’ve never had a use for them other than as objects of beauty, which they certainly are, no argument. And now I know: tall flowers? Take the lid off the jar, and voila! A large vase.
Now, where shall I set this gorgeous gift of nature and human endeavor so that (1) guests can enjoy it and (2) the clumsy among us (author included) won’t trip over it?!
