Each Monday Cathy from Rambling In The Garden invites us to share a vase assembled from materials collected in our gardens. Today I almost picked red Camellia sasanqua ‘Yuletide’. It opened in late October and never do I remember having it still in bloom as it is now at late February.
But hellebores are at their peak and seem deserving of the limelight this week.
Fragrant Daphne odora and and cheerful narcissus are used as companion plants. A stem of Arum provides a bit of foliage interest.

Apologies for not responding yet to comments last week. Sometimes we just have to pause. I have been taking care of my husband who continues to meet health challenges with grace and good humor. Please know I appreciate hearing from you and look forward to catching up on your posts soon.
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.
