More Martha Sturdy Vessels....

We just re-stocked our selection of Martha Sturdy white marble resin Vessels! This is my favourite.
A stunning centre piece for a long and narrow dining table (24" l x 4" h x 2" d)
A mix of locally grown Coral Charm & Jules Ely Peonies
(which are only available for another week or so, depending on the weather. )Also available in 14" length & in varying heights from 2" - 12", and other shapes & sizes.
So easy to fill with Peonies, Roses, Orchids.....
Moss, Ferns or Sempervivum.
Or even beautiful gourmet displays.
So many ideas!

One good thing about living in "RainCity" is that we have the perfect growing condition for Hydrangea....
The smaller green & ivory florets are "Annabelle" hydrangea. These grow from small bright green clusters of florets into huge ivory round clusters as they mature. The lighter green larger florets are "Limelight" and change from a lighter green to ivory as they mature, and grow in a long conical cluster of florets as opposed to the traditional round shape.
As the season changes from late Spring to early Summer, Hydrangea will become available locally in many shades of Blue,Purple,Pink, Chartreuse, and White/Ivory....Immature Charteuse Annabelle a tall clear vase with green beach glass.
