Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share a vase highlighting what is growing in our gardens.
I gathered a variety of vase materials yesterday evening, including Thalia daffodils, camellias and luxurious stems of spiraea, but ended up with a simple display using two types of flowers.
[Our daughter designed and built the cherry cabinet for the foyer. She named it Trillium.]
Restricting the choices to Anemone De Caen ‘Mr Fokker’ and a maturing double hellebore hybrid created a spare but powerful color palette.
This fancy hellebore began a lovely, pure white and has gracefully aged toward apple green.
I added a strawberry-flecked hellebore for its height and just because it is a pretty one I have not shown this year. It has a red outline at the bottom edge.
