Here we are again on Monday and time for In a Vase on Monday. This week the crape myrtles in my garden are beginning to open and becoming the stars of the garden. What better to include in a vase?
The pink crape myrtle is ‘Tuscarora,’ and the purple one, my favorite, is ‘Catawba.’ We added the blue Hydrangea macrophylla and ‘White Swan’ coneflowers for contrast.
I couldn’t resist putting my “miracle” flowers once again as a sidelight to this week’s offering. Three calla lilies, down from seven originals, are still presentable after six weeks in the vase. They are getting shorter each week as their stems seem to deteriorate from the bottom, but I am amazed these three have survived so long. Has anyone out there had similar experience with cut flowers hanging on for such an extended period?
I am grateful to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for starting this meme and inviting me to participate with others in displaying what we can bring in from our gardens each week. Please visit her site to see what she and others are doing this week.
