The roses are popping and the frogs are ready.
My favorite flower frog is really a tulipiere of sorts. Tulipiere: Generally made of pottery, a tulipiere is an ornate flower-holder comprised of a larger vessel containing holes, spouts or troughs to hold single stems of flowers. The concept dates back to the Egyptians who created similar type vases, but is best remembered from 17th century Holland.
The 25 individual vases are molded together and it's easy to make a beautiful arrangement.
First, fill each vase with water and pop into a beautiful bowl.
Pop each one into a vase. It's done. So easy.
The little vases are now hidden under the mass of flowers. It makes me look like I can actually arrange flowers.
I have some tulipieres I like to use for herbs, some for pansies. I'll share more of them though out spring and summer.
Until next time, don't forget to stop and smell the roses and have a lovely day!
