We have just returned from a warm Thanksgiving week with family in California. We discovered that we had a frost while we were gone, and most of the flowers in bloom in our garden were damaged beyond use for In a Vase this Monday. There were, fortunately, a few colorful survivors that have made it into a bowl this week.
I selected several ‘Our Linda’ and ‘Debutante’ camellias, Encore azaleas, a geranium, and even a ‘Clarence’ bearded iris to float in a bowl. Most of them were found in the interior of the plants or next to the warmer house. Those on the exterior were frost damaged.
Again I send thanks to Cathy for hosting this weekly meme. Please visit her at Rambling in the Garden to see what she and others are sharing in their vases this week.
