Yes, it is actually a bus – it’s not just the crazy American blogger. This is a good sized biscuit tin repurposed as a vase. The tin was a gift to my husband from an English friend, I am not so sure about Scottish Biscuits but I love the container. The arrangement is a bit of a contraption as I wanted to save the tin-I like tins. I cut down four bottled water containers and arranged the flowers in them (inside the tin) Here is another view:
As for the plant material, the burgundy foliage is Copperleaf, Acalypha wilkesiana, the big green foliage with white flowers is Sweet Begonia, Begonia odorata ‘Alba’ ( I can occasionally catch the scent of these, but it is very subtle) the berries are Brazilian Pepper, grey spikes are flowers of the Flapjack Plant, a variety of Kalanchoe, and as always a bit of Boston Fern.
Happy Holidays to all and Thank You to Cathy for hosting.
Here is my front door with a wreath made from materials from my garden and a bit of our Christmas tree. It is composed of grapevine from Muscadines, Brazilian Pepperberries and Maypops (the fruit of the Passionflower – native to most of Eastern American) There are bits of Frazier Fir from our Christmas tree.
I think Santa will be able to find us now.
Merry Christmas from Amy, Alan and Charles the Greyhounds.
