In a Vase on Monday: Memorial

For this week’s vase I decided to share one that my Arranger put together as a memorial to celebrate the life of a dear friend at her funeral. Karen loved flowers, and this arrangement comes from our garden and our hearts…with kisses.


It features azalea ‘Sunglow’ and Deutzia gracilis ‘Chardonnay Pearls.’

    Sorry you and your wife have lost a friend. The flowers are a beautiful tribute. Deutzia is something I’ve seen only a couple of times and it’s always a quite large shrub.
