Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share each Monday a vase of materials gathered from our gardens.
More rain has kept the garden drenched, but the sun has sparkled here and there. Days seem longer and I feel general optimism that spring is nearby. The hellebores and winter daphne remain timid about blooming, but even one open winter daphne flower is a fragrant treat.
The purple, heavy glass dish measure 3-inches in diameter and may actually be a candle holder, although I bought it several years ago for tiny flowers.
A couple of indoor cyclamen offered up one bloom each for this week’s diminutive vase. I also braved cutting one of 4 orchid stems from a gifted Christmas plant to make the purple vase pop.
Daphne odora (Winter daphne)
