Day 9/33: Close Up Two

Another view of the accessories used in the over saturated picture of the living room from day 7. One of my favorite flowers is Bells of Ireland. They're a vibrant green, and hearty though they appear very delicate. I tried to grow these in the backyard garden this year - but the rain of the Western New York summer wasn't kind to the fragile seeds.

I prefer them bunched together simply, like they are here, in a sleek vase so that you can admire their beautiful texture and color from stem to tip. The incense burner was a travel token from Turkey, even though I can't take the smoke from incense. Day 10: New Collections.

  5. Another great picture. I love that green -- it makes the oranges and browns "pop" (such an overused term but it does convey what I mean). I love belles of Ireland, too -- my mother used to grow them but I never have!

  7. I used to love Bells of Ireland, that was till they poked me and made me bleed- they have some sharp little needle-like things on them- ouch!

  8. I love the flowers, that color is great with your others. It just dawned on me that I have expresso leather furniture and I could use these colors myself.
