In A Vase On Monday – Pink Atmosphere

Each Monday brings the chance to join Cathy’s In A Vase On Monday to share an arrangement using materials gathered from the garden.

This October has been curiously mild and dry. As a result Camellia sasanqua ‘Hana-Jiman,’ which began appearing several weeks ago, have seen no frosty nights to interrupt their flowering. Several pelargoniums have recovered from the heat and humidity of the summer well enough to produce a few more salmon-hued clusters. Zinnias continue to bloom as well.

Materials

Camellia sasanqua ‘Hana-Jiman’
Pelargonium (Geranium)
Zinnia
Porcelain Ikebana vase, Georgetown Pottery, Maine. Triangle Black Wave (6.5 W x 6.5 L x 2H)

    Another elegant offering Susie; that vase is gorgeous. I do like these Camellia sasanqua, I’ve just bought a white one for the terrace and it is flowering so prettily.

      Christina, I’ve been wanting a white camellia too. Do you know its name? This camellia bush is rarely blooming all over at once. It’s a real treat to see it in full bloom without frost touching it. We’ll be i the 80s this week.

    What a pretty camellia – does this type need better weather than the UK can provide, I wonder? You do these vases so confidently, Susie, and I love to see them – thanks for sharing

      Would love more also Kris. My other sasanqua is Yuletide. Planted these without knowing anything about growing camellias–beginner’s luck. Since then I’ve planted others but they haven’t survived.

      Thanks Anca. Would love to study ikebana some day. Meanwhile the special vase helps create a suggestion of the actual thing. These camellias smell lovely.
