Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share a vase of materials gathered from our gardens.
The gardenias are the prettiest and most prolific in years. I packed a blue stoneware pitcher full of fresh cuttings.
The gardenias could have stood on their own but I needed to use the last of the saved peonies that have been stored in my refrigerator for too many weeks.
Next a piece, then maybe two, of hydrangea added because it just looks its best this week.
Gardenia jasminoides ‘August Beauty’ (Cape Jasmine)
Paeonia ‘Festiva Maxima’
Paeonia lactiflora ‘Sarah Bernhardt’
Stoneware pitcher glazed with bands of cream, green, blue. (pitcher and 4 cups, Pringle Pottery, North Carolina, circa 1977)
As always thanks to our host Cathy at Rambling In The Garden for providing this opportunity to to share our vases. Visit her to discover what garden surprises she and others are offering this week.
