It seems like months that I have been waiting for the Camellia japonica ‘Governor Mouton’ to open. Buds have looked like they were ready to pop for weeks, but the cold weather we have experienced just shut them down, that is, until two days ago, and pop they have.
After such a long wait, it seems only appropriate to show them off In a Vase on Monday, the weekly invitation by Cathy at Rambling in the Garden to show what is growing in our gardens.
The flowers open with a pale pink and fade to pure white.
The container is a Waterford crystal biscuit barrel, and the heart was my Christmas present to my Arranger a few years back.
Please visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden to see what she and others are putting in their vases this week.
