In a Vase on Monday: A Fond Farewell

For this week’s In a Vase on Monday, hosted by Cathy at Rambling in the Garden, we bid a fond farewell to the end of the tulips and camellias. Both tulip ‘Menton’ and camellia ‘Governor Mouton’ have appeared in previous vases from these parts, but we feel they are worthy of one last look.

A bit of Foster holly foliage completes the arrangement.

    Sorry I am late commenting John – I think you must have missed the link off your Monday’s comment on mine but I meant to pop across and see if you had posted. This is so elegant – the Arranger has really done you both proud and the tulips are the perfect shade with the soft colour of the roses. Thanks for sharing
