Each Monday from Rambling In The Garden Cathy invites us to share a vase assembled from materials collected in our gardens.
Today I offer edited and arranged branches of Camellia sasanqua ‘Yuletide’ in an artichoke green vase.
The blooms are not fully open and will continue to unfold.
Flowers and Foliage
Camellia sasanqua ‘Yuletide’
Hand-thrown ceramic vase from Seagrove Pottery, unknown artist
Quick report back on the Hippeastrum from last week’s vase: the stem was cut 9 days ago and placed in water. While two flowers have faded and been removed, the remaining three blooms continue to look fresh. Four of the flowers had been open for a few days before I cut the stem, so I am satisfied with the longevity of the amaryllis as a cut flower.
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.
