Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share a vase of materials gathered from our gardens.
Since April 1 I have been watching with anticipation as a large pot of Asian lilies developed greenery, then buds, then buds revealing color.
Finally this past week the first flowers opened on June 7, quickly followed by many.
Having planned all spring to use the carmine lilies in a Monday vase when they appeared so quickly at mid-week I was unprepared to spend time arranging them. After trying out several vases without success, I opted for a cylindrical straight-sided glass container to hold the simple bouquet.
Lilium ‘Black Out’ (Asiatic lily)
Straight-sided glass cylinder
