Last week I cut a few remaining yellow rosebuds from the bush in front of my house. I chose to trim a few sprigs of vinca, boxwood, and my overgrown red coleus for filler.
The roses have been gone for days but this morning I grabbed a larger vase and snipped a bit more boxwood and coleus. I also added one sprig of the flower from some weird succulent. It is the paler purple flower.
Next week I might raid my neighbor's yard for some rhododendron too.
Being too cheap to buy fresh flowers can work out well.
