Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share an arrangement using materials collected from our gardens.
The starting point for today’s vase is a small glass bowl I found in the NCMA gift shop while visiting Art In Bloom this week. The glass is translucent white and has a pleasing low profile, rounded form.
I have been enjoying the striking blooms of Anemone coronaria ‘Mr. Fokker.’
My plan was to showcase anemones alone, but the result was so stark, I revisited the garden to collect a few hellebores to fill out the arrangement.
A stem of Leucojum is tucked among the hellebores.

It was worth refashioning the design. In the end the colors of the hellebores brought out the purple hue of the anemones, resulting in a richer, more satisfying Monday vase.
Thanks to Cathy at Rambling In The Garden for hosting and giving us an opportunity to share flower designs across the world. Visit her to discover what she and others found to place In A Vase On Monday.
