“Meadow in a Vase”
“Take one flower that you like and get lots of them. And don’t try to ‘arrange’ them. It’s surprisingly hard to do a flower arrangement the way a florist does one. Instead, bunch them all together or put them in a series of small vases all down the table. “
– Ina Garten
As I finished my studio work with a few local wildflowers, I stuck them in a vase, to eventually sit on our kitchen table. That’s a secondary benefit of my studio work. There is almost always a flower or flowers in a vase after the shoot.
As I looked over at the small flower collection, I thought it would make a nice image as well, even though I tend to avoid showing the containers for my floral shots. This one, though simple, seemed to work well and shows of the flowers, Wild Bergamot and Yellow Coneflower nicely. So, here it is for your enjoyment and consideration.

Hi Ed, I like the simple vase and shine of the water. It makes a lovely composition… with the coneflower as a juggernaut!
You’re welcome… just wanted to use “juggernaut” 🙂
Beautiful, especially the contrast of the colors against the black background and the reflection of the light in the vase.
I love the title. Beautiful still-life ❤
