Both arrangements are very pretty. The Heuchera leaves were a perfect addition to the second. I hope your eye surgery went smoothly.

KRIS — ​The surgery did go smoothly. Now I am just doing 3 eye drops 4x a day which is frustrating. And wearing reading glasses from the drug store. Feels strange not to have my regular glasses on which I love and miss.


That first vase is a funny little thing, and the flowers are sweet. Love the not-quite ikebana. The geum is a beauty.
Glad your surgery went well.


PS - aren't the details on heuchera leaves delightful? They make such pretty accents in a bouquet.


Your arrangements are always so beautiful. You definitely have the knack! Glad you are back and that your surgery went smoothly. Eyes heal quickly, yes?


Love both Ikebana and Ikebana'ish (that is one nostalgic vase!).
I grow a very short, tuft-like Dianthus and adore its scent: such small flowers that pack a powerful punch.
Never divided any of my Heuchera. I think I'll give that a try.

Linda Brazill

CHAVLI — I've divided a few Heuchera with good results but they are all old ones; less hybridized for fanciness which may make a difference. I use a few of them as ground cover swaths.


Your vases are beautiful, Linda--the vessels, themselves, and the arrangements within. Glad to hear your surgery went well. I hope you've had some recent rain? We've had a bit--not enough, but every little bit helps.

BETH — Alas, just under a tenth of an inch. Came down as I was watering. ​

Barbara H.

Lovely, lovely, lovely. Glad your eyes are coming along. Is it the frames of your old glasses you love? If so, use them for reading glasses that are progressive bifocals with clear glass for distance and correction for the reading part. Getting used to the new way is kind of hard - what I missed most was being able to see small print so clearly and well before the cataract surgery because I was near-sighted.

Linda Brazill

BARBARA — Yes, it's the frames I miss. I am going to do what you suggest; clear glass on top with readers below. The time from the first surgery until you can get new glasses is definitely frustrating.
