Posies – Frogs

Last week someone dear gave me this amazing handmade “frog.” Frogs are pins mounted on a stable base. They are used to keep the stems of flowers and foliage in place. Floral frogs can be very plain, spectacular, or handmade by an artisan. My floral frog was purchased in Amish country, Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

Frogs are perfect for creating Ikebana. I have used mine to display some crabapple stems that are on the verge of blooming.

Here are the crabapple stems blossoming. O Happy Day!
