In a Vase on Monday: ‘Miz America’ Blooms Again

It’s been a long time since I have been able to join Cathy at Rambling in the Garden to show a Vase on Monday. My “porch garden” has very little to offer these days, and we have not been able to replenish the pots due to our quarantine. One plant that is bursting forth with flowers right now is ‘Miz America’ mustard. In fact it is bolting as it recognizes that it’s time to make seed, and flowering is part of that process.

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

  1. I didn’t even know there were named varieties of mustard plant. (My favorite prepared mustard is Gulden’s.)

    I think the mustard is blooming full force out here in Los Angeles, but I wouldn’t know because we’re not supposed to make unnecessary drives! ARGH!
    Hope you are all safe.

    Very cheerful! My only blooms outside right now are the daffodils. You’ve inspired me to go out and bring some in!!


  5. Cathy says:

    Lovely to see you doing a vase again – that bit of string around the vase itself is a touch of class!

    Oh, wonderful! Glad you could join in again John!
