improv flower arrangement: pond in a vase

Maria Robledo's pond in a vase

Maria Robledo has a way with flower arranging, or perhaps we should say: off-the-cuff displays of just about any fresh branch, or flower or bunch of leaves. The other evening at her house, we were smitten with the huge green vase into which she’d poured a shallow pool of water; she simply floated a few flowers that she picked one of the bushes growing in her Brooklyn backyard.
