In A Vase On Monday – January With Gold

In A Vase On Monday – January With Gold

Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share a vase of cuttings from our gardens. We have entered a new year but as the garden has offered up no new flowers to welcome 2021, I returned to Yuletide camellias.

To try to create something different I selected a pair of small black vases painted with gold flowers that once belonged to my maternal grandmother.

I suspect the little glass vases were mementos picked up by my uncle during his naval career travels, but I have no way of knowing. For the past week the days have been so cold and dreary and the daylight so weak the touches of gold and the deep yellow centers on the camellias are the brightest things around.

    Yuletide was one of our most reliable Camellia sasanqua, and one of the most cooperative. Many cultivars of Camellia sasanqua can get awkward if it stays in the nursery for too long. Yuletide stays neat longer.
