An Array Of Pale In A Vase For Monday

 A green Sideritis stem, a single Grevillea 'Moonlight' and Phylica stem, and a cluster of Leucadendron 'Blush'.
I gravitate naturally to gaudy, but a pale yellow array has an elegance worth appreciating.  While I took the photos on the driveway this warm sunny morning,  a Hummingbird appeared at nearby Grevillea 'Superb'.  I got a few shots before the male Hummer, who considers this Grevillea his exclusive territory, arrived to fight.

 Nice subdued color array here, also.

  1. That is a beautiful, restrained, and elegant arrangement, I just love it! The shadow on the wall behind it is also pretty artsy!
    You got some fabulous shots of the hummingbird feasting on the grevillea. We are so lucky to have these entertaining cheerful birds around.
    Have a wonderful start into the new week!
    Warm regards,
    Christina

  2. You may have to give me a photography tutorial one day - all your photos are exceptional but I love these! Your vase was pretty to start with but your photograph takes it to another level. My own Sideritis has yet to produce one of those sexy stems but I'm counting myself lucky that the plants finally seem to be settling in. As to 'Moonlight', I do need to find a place for one.

    1. Glad you liked the photos. I just take 100 and pick the one that's in focus.

      Very, very, very pleased with the Sideritis. Enjoy!

  3. I seem to recall you once claiming to have no talent for flower arranging. What a fibber you are turning out to be.

    1. Surely you jest!

      Wait, did I just call you Shirley? (Airplane! reference).

    1. I was enjoying the sun, for once. The shadows were quite dramatic.

    1. That long-shadows-of-winter thing.

      I discovered putting together a vase of something encourages looking for good color combinations. Kris P, you, Ricki, are so good at that. It's educational. :)
