Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share an arrangement using materials collected from our gardens.
Many Daffodils are beginning to show color around the garden, but only one sunny flower had ventured to open by the time I gathered items for today’s vase. On the other hand Hellebores have been making strong headway all week and I resigned myself to using them again this week. They worked out nicely in this late winter design.
Responding to some sunny, warm days, a large spirea in the western border soon will burst into blossom. I enlisted several of its branches to add shape and structure to the vase.
A small florist’s frog inserted into a small black plastic dish keeps the materials in place. A white ceramic square serves as the vase.
Helleborus x hybridus (Lenten rose)
Spiraea prunifolia (bridal wreath spiraea)
