Each Monday from Rambling In The Garden Cathy invites us to share a vase assembled from materials collected in our gardens.
My garden club visited a member’s greenhouse during the first week of December. Although Katydid Greenhouses displayed a multitude of poinsettias, cyclamen are what I prefer for decorating with during the holidays.
Fortunately there were plenty of cyclamen in varying colors from which to choose.
For today’s offering I combined four cyclamen from that field trip with a few Green Trick Dianthus that caught my eye at the local grocery. I finished the arrangement with a few decorative baubles—red seedpods, glass ornaments and ribbons.
Dianthus barbatus ‘Green Trick’
Silverplate Bowl and Tray
White cyclamen are my favorite but this dark pink was too appealing to leave behind.
Yesterday’s view of the meditation circle and garden was a snowy winter wonderland. Fortunately I managed to get all my bulbs planted early in the week. I hope they’re settled in and enjoying a nice chill.
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.
