It’s time once again for another Vase to share for Cathy’s meme, In a Vase on Monday, for which we are asked to share something from our current garden each week. Last week I complained about their being so little left in my garden to include, and this week is not much better. I was, however, able to locate a single ‘Debutante’ Camellia japonica that made it through the frost unscathed. Using the simple silver vase and tray and adding the purple pansy were, of course, my Arranger’s contributions.
The limited flowers right now suggested that a simple arrangement might be best to take advantage of what is available. The silver bud vase has been in the family for several generations, and the tray was a wedding gift. My Arranger even polished them for the photograph. How nice is that? The greenery is foliage from a very happy ‘Green Giant’ arborvitae. The small glittery balls are included to remind us of the approaching holiday season.
Please visit Cathy at In a Vase on Monday to see what she and others will be sharing from their gardens this week.
