In A Vase On Monday – Reduction

In A Vase On Monday – Reduction

Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share a vase of cuttings from our gardens.

The camellias in last week’s vase were short-lived but the remaining materials persist and reduction leads to simplicity. Shifted into another container the arum and gardenia foliage provide shape and structure for a new design, accented by two stems of anthurium. A single white cyclamen flower is the only new element.

      No, I doubt it. This is from a grocery store house plant gifted by a neighbor last year. I’m terrible with house plants but at least this one has some new flowers this year. Are you able to grow them?

    I started reading your post, Susie, and realised I didn’t remember seeing arum leaves, so checked back and I seem to have missed looking at it altogether – I am so SO sorry! I am generally really methodical with IAVOM, responding to the comment and clicking straight on the link to go to the commenter’s vase, but I obviously slipped up – a slapped wrist for me 🙄 You certainly had bountiful camellias last week, but the simplicity of today’s vase has a special charm. I love the shade of green of the vase, which would set off most blooms beautifully, and your experiments in b&w give an intriguing insight

      These anthurium are puny compared to ones in florists. I remember seeing them for the first time in a florist’s window in Chapel Hill that did very modern designs and I thought it was amazing.
