Sunday Bouquet: Cactus Flower (In Glass)

Echinocereus Englemanii from the Glass Flowers exhibition
Harvard Museum of Natural History 

This cactus flower was handmade in 1895 by Rudolf Blaschk from glass using a process called flame working (also known as lampworking). Each tiny spike of the cactus is pulled out from melted glass and then glued to the blown cactus. 

The Ware Collection of Glass Models of Flowering Plants was commissioned by Harvard in the 19th century to teach botany to Harvard students in the days before color photographs.

Sunday Bouquet: Shaggy Green Mums and Art

Green Mums WIth Landscape

Photo by Marni Elyse Katz / StyleCarrot

I love to buy these green mums from Trader Joe’s. They’re not expensive, they last a long time, and the crisp, fresh green looks great with my favorite vase, purchased years ago from The Society of Arts & Crafts. Woodblock artwork on left is an Etsy find and the landscape painting on the right from the now shuttered Judi Rotenberg Gallery.
