Again I am joining Cathy’s weekly challenge In A Vase On Monday as she encourages garden bloggers to create fresh arrangements each Monday using materials found in our gardens.
A surprise flower, a lone sprig of the herb Tanacetum vulgare (Common tansy) with gold daisy-like buttons, was the starting point for this week’s vase.
Several blooms of Camellia sasanqua ‘Yuletide’ serve as focal flowers. Although I used ‘Yuletide’ last week also, choices are limited at this time of year. Besides, the heavy yellow stamens precisely echo the rich hue of the tansy.
Clippings of dark green cypress and chartreuse sedum feather out to soften the edges of the ceramic glazed container. Color and texture in the tips of the foliage accentuate the flowers.
