This week is the fourth anniversary for Cathy at Rambling In the Garden’s meme to showcase arrangements created from our gardens. To celebrate, she has requested that we create an arrangement in an object not normally used for a vase.
As you can see, I’ve used a seashell I found while vacationing years ago in the Bahamas. It is supposed to look like a Hermit Crab, made from the succulent Senecio archeri. The eyes are cotoneaster fruit skins stuck on ivy geranium flower stalks.
The props, a skeletonized sea fan, small shell and piece of sponge coral, were also beach finds. The wooden puzzle of a tropical fish was purchased on a different trip to Jamaica.
Wander over to Cathy’s to see what innovative arrangements gardeners all over the world have created this week.
