To add a touch of green -- and even more visual interest -- we tucked some fuzzy lamb's ears into the bouquets. A pair of matching ceramic vases anchor them gracefully.
A stout glass vessel placed in the cast-iron urn is doing most of the work here. Gather enough stems of Spanish bluebells and blossoming chive for a dense arrangement; we used several dozen of each.
Hyacinthoides hispanic -- so named because it is native to Spain -- has rigid stems that grow 8 to 20 inches tall and dangling blossoms, each only about 3/4 inch long when fully mature. The plants thrive in deciduous forests, where they tend to huddle in tightly packed clumps. This sun-speckled patch grows in the Brooklyn Botanic Garden in New York City.
