Flowers - Indoors at Filoli

When my friend & I visited Filoli a couple of weeks ago I took loads of photos in the gardens, some of which I'll post later. I also took some of the flower arrangements and potted plants in the house. These are done by the volunteers & docents, and are always from the Filoli gardens, so they are seasonal.

This beautiful asymmetrical arrangement was in the ladies' receiving room. 

Here's one of two matching arrangements that flank the fireplace in the grand reception room.

This unusual plant was in the kitchen. 
I loved it, so I took down the name. 
Now, I can't find it!  Anyone have an idea what it is??

This arrangement of peonies in the swan container (I want!)  is on the counter in the butler's pantry.

I love this example of Ikebana.  They offer classes in this form of Japanese flower arranging at Filoli.

This angel wing begonia is in the garden house.

Isn't this one just delicious! (Also in garden house.)

I would love to fill my home with arrangements!  I think I'd better get out to the garden & plant more flowers!

Cheers!  Chris
