It has been a bit of a challenge to meet my commitment to offer a Vase on Monday today. My rain gauge reads over three and a half inches and it is still raining steadily. Moving about in my garden felt like I was walking on an unwrung sponge, with water standing everywhere. It will take awhile for my clay soil to absorb all this rain…and more is forecast. Because of the steady rain I decided to make just one stop outside, so I headed for the Camellia sasanqua ‘Our Linda,’ now blooming its head off. I must have been a sight trying to juggle the clippers, a container, an umbrella and the cut flowers. All that notwithstanding, here is our offering this week.
My Arranger suggested we display ‘Our Linda’ blossoms in six miniature vases on a green glass plate. There were enough petals left to sprinkle about.
‘Our Linda’ is my first camellia to bloom this fall and was a gift from David Park at Camellia Forest Nursery. I love its delicate pink.
Please visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden this week to see what she and others are sharing.
