In a Vase on Monday – Magenta with a dash of Lime

I needed something to block out distracting items in the background – just the thing! a breast cast. This was made when a friend of mine was about to have breast surgery. She gathered a group of her friends together on the eve of the operation for a beautiful informal evening of love, laughter and making breast casts together using Mod Rock. We met later to celebrate the successful surgery and we each painted our breast casts.

Thanks as always to Cathy for hosting this fascinating meme. Pop along over to see many more wonderful flowers arranged ‘In A Vase on Monday’.

Update: the yellow flower is Sisyrinchium striatum  (thank you Christina.) How am I ever going to remember that!
