the art of flower arranging

Had fun this morning arranging a bunch of pink ranunculus blooms into bud vases. It's harder than it looks! They are in season right now and I couldn't resist picking up a good-sized bunch while we were grocery shopping Central Market this morning. These are not quite as big as the yellow/orange ranunculus I bought at a flower shop in Paris, but quite pretty.

Oh, and the "bud vases" are actually glass yogurt containers. These little jars are so great. I like them for impromptu centerpieces using flowers, herbs, and plant cuttings, especially leaves and berries.
