It’s nice to be back in the blogosphere after a few days absence due to travel. It’s always good to sleep in ones own bed, and it is especially delightful to discover on our return that the hellebores are opening to give us something new to put In a Vase on Monday. The rain yesterday leaves my garden still water-logged, but it’s noticeably warmer and my spirits are lifting.
These are Helleborus orientalis ‘Elegance” and (on the right) an unidentified variety, whose name was lost in our move from Chapel Hill over nine years ago. They are arranged in a simple vase on a silver butter dish, another of my Arranger’s family heirlooms.
Let me invite you to visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden, the host of this meme, to see what she and others are putting in their vases this day.
