Every Monday Cathy from Rambling In The Garden invites us to share a vase assembled from materials collected in our gardens.
Last week I included a creamy double-form hybrid hellebore that was just beginning to bloom. I revisited the no-name plant this week and found some fuller flowers. Without even planning an arrangement I photographed them in front of a large ceramic vase for today’s Monday offering. Although eventually I did float the blossoms in a small glass bowl and take pictures, these images better capture the green highlights against the ivory petals with their dancing, ruffled edges.

Last week the weather was sunny magnificence, with one day reaching 78 degrees Fahrenheit.
Here are a few more blooms from the garden. Daphne sat upon gentle breezes, making each pass by the font door a fragrant delight.
Daffodils could wait no longer to begin spreading cheer.
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.
