After a long siege of minimal moisture in the garden, we had an inch and a half of rain last night. The ground is delightfully soggy now…at least for a few days. With the wind and rain denuding the trees of the last vestiges of leaves, I was pleased to find a few undoubtedly familiar lovelies still about to share in a vase this early December Monday.
In the Kenzan flower arranger are ‘Clarence’ bearded iris and a single ‘Our Linda’ Camellia sasanqua. The second vase contains camellias ‘Our Linda’ and ‘Debutante’ Camellia japonica. The miniature third vase is just large enough to hold a few of our winter purple pansies.
The wonderful idea of sharing flowers from our garden each Monday comes from Cathy at Rambling in the Garden. Please visit her to see what she and others are sharing this week.
