Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share a vase of materials gathered from our gardens.
This Ikebana-style design reminds me of flying or dancing.
While Heuchera leaves reach out and stretch away from the vase, an arching piece of spirea sports tiny stems playfully pointing upwards. I had intended to use the white flowers of spirea but removed them on a whim.
A young camellia bud leans forward and up; its fully open counterpart keeps the entire design gently grounded.
Muscari adds texture and balances the deep coral of the camellia.
Camellia ‘Coral Delight’
Heuchera villosa ‘Big Top Bronze’ (Coral Bells)
Spirea Spiraea prunifolia (bridal wreath spiraea)
Porcelain Ikebana vase, Georgetown Pottery, Maine. Triangle Black Wave (6.5 W x 6.5 L x 2H)
