The frost over the past few days has turned most of our flowers to a nice shade of brown. The winter pansies and violas are hanging on as expected, but I shall wait to use them in a Monday vase at some future time when my options are reduced.
With the holiday upon us, I thought it might be nice to share some seasonal color for In a Vase on Monday.
The stars of the show are frost free nandina berries from plants I had banished several years ago to the “plant hospital” in the woods to recover. The supporting characters are foliage from Foster holly, aucuba ‘Mr Goldstrike,’ and Cryptomeria japonica. A few mature cryptomeria cones add to the festivities.
Please visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden to see what she and others are sharing from their gardens this week.
