In a Vase on Monday: A Study in Yellow

We are just back from a delightful vacation in Northern Virginia, and I have had to rush to catch up with the garden in time to create our vase this week. I selected from among several yellow flowers blooming today and backed them up with lime and gold “greenery.”


The flowers are from three annual lantanas and Tickseed ‘Creme Brulee’ (Coreopsis verticillata). The supporting roles are played by ‘Golconda’ Leyland cypress (Cupressocyparis leylandi ‘Golconda’) and Berckman’s arborvitae (Thuja occidentalis berckmanii).

The vase is another of the blue and white pottery vases we obtained in Japan. Once again I am grateful to my wife for her arranging skill.
