In A Vase On Monday – Gardenias In Blue Pitcher

The gardenias are the prettiest and most prolific in years. I packed a blue stoneware pitcher full of fresh cuttings.

Gardenia jasminoides

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.

Paeonia lactiflora ‘Coral Charm’ (Coral Charm Peony)

Next a piece, then maybe two, of hydrangea added because it just looks its best this week.

Hydrangea macrophylla

    That’s a lot of gardenias! Like peonies, gardenias are one of those flowers that does well in a few gardens here, but not in most. I can not figure out why it is happy in some spots, especially since the happiest are in situations that they should not be happy in.

    Lovely arrangement Susie. My Sarah Bernhardt should be opening soon… I brought it over from the old garden last year and it didn’t mind at all and has several buds. 😃
