For this week’s In a Vase on Monday, I must rely on some of the flowers you have seen before. These, however, are among the things that are blooming right now and are the obvious choices. As more plants grow and begin to flower, I will be able to broaden the view. We had a significant frost in our area Saturday night, and I must admit that I cut the items for the arrangement before the temperature went below freezing. It always helps to plan ahead (or so my grandmother taught me).
The flowers are ‘Governor Mouton’ Camellia japonica, an unidentified hellebore, and Muscari armeniacum. The blue and white container is one we obtained when we lived in Japan. The dish is Waterford crystal.
It will probably be a few days before I can assess the frost damage, particularly to the open camellia blossoms.
In a Vase on Monday is hosted by Cathy at Rambling in the Garden. Let me suggest that you visit her and see what she and others are finding in their gardens to bring in for a vase each Monday.
