Wild Flowers

Every time my husband gives me flowers, I'm sure he's partly horrified that I immediately take off all the leaves and chop them down to fit tightly and neatly into a vase.  But lately, I've been seeing arrangements with the leaves left on, standing a bit tall and I'm liking it...I especially love them in the last image:

Yes, I try to keep the greenery, perhaps not all, but some, in my floral arrangements. But it can be hard sometimes, depending on the size of the vase. (That's kate in that second photo, right?:)

Jen - it is. I know...I feel like this can go bad quickly and not look nearly as nice as these images so it definately depends on the vase. And I think you need AT LEAST 2 dozen to pull the look off.

The last picture is definitely my fave. Have a great day!!

Pretty! That looks like an Annechovie print in the last photo too.

I always like to leave a bit of the greenery on myself. Love the flower pics.

I'm never quite sure what to do to make them fit into the vase nicely. Either I have all the wrong vases or I know nothing about making them lay properly! My husband only tends to bring me flowers for Valentines day and our past anniversaries (with a gentle reminder at that) so I'm not exactly that well practiced :)
