Or artichoke bloom. I bought it on Saturday at the Stuttgart flower market for €4. The directions on the tag said to keep it dry; no water necessary. The easiest “arrangement” possible.
It smells something like honey.
To see what other bloggers have put in a vase today, please visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden.

They’re as wonderful as floral decorations as they are to eat! I tried one in a vase earlier – they’re even heavier and harder to balance than sunflowers.
Some of them in the market had long stems, but you would need one of those really large (expensive) vases to hold them. Right now, mine is happy just resting right on a tray on the coffee table.
I love that it’s just sitting there, no vase, looking gorgeous. Like a more sculptural Tillandsia.
It’s perfect for me. I often fail at more fiddlely arrangements. Now, I’m interested to see how long it will last.
They are so grandiose! They look very nice.
It’s like a little piece of sculpture — that smells like honey.
It will be fun to watch it dry out. You will have to give us a report.
It looks quite good, considering it’s not in water. But the outer blue-purple bloom is turning brown, instead of drying. If it lasts ’til Friday, I’ll think it was a good 4 euro buy.
This looks great, Cindy 🙂
and a refreshing change
