In a Vase on Monday: Debutante

We’ve had several mornings of light frost that have damaged most of the blooms in the garden beyond their use in a Vase on Monday. The stalwart camellias, however, have made it beautifully. The first Camellia japonica ‘Debutante’ flower appeared after the first frost, so it seems only fitting to feature it in our vase this week.

All of my camellias are loaded with buds, so I am hopeful that we will have a bit of color in the garden over the winter. I suspect that they will appear from time to time in IAVOM.

Please visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden to see what she and so many others are sharing from their gardens this week.

    A perfect bloom to bring inside. I’m sure your arranger will find many ways to arrange them as winter proceeds.
