Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share a vase of materials gathered from our gardens.
I gathered the first Thalia Daffodils this morning thinking they would feature in today’s vase. Stems of spirea, camellias, snowflakes and bits of foliage of different sorts, including fresh rosettes of unfurling columbine–all collected up as well.
But hellebores being conditioned in a drinking glass engaged my attention and inspired me to use them on their own without adornment.
For a container today I had already decided to use my grandmother’s burgundy teapot so I shifted the hellebores into it.
Three sprigs of Cerinthe seemed to add a nice final touch.
