In A Vase On Monday – Claret With Texture

Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share a vase of materials gathered from our gardens.

In A Vase On Monday – Claret With Texture

I purchased a beautiful potted calla lily a couple of weeks ago enticed by its deep claret flowers, knowing some portion of it might end up in a Monday vase.  These alluring waxy flowers quickly came together into a comfortable assemblage I find pleasing.

Calla Lily (Zantedeschia)

It is perhaps the vase, not the flowers, that is the primary focal point of today’s design. Newly purchased through an online estate sale of vases, this refined container belonged to a garden club friend, Jinny. A respected floral designer, horticulture judge and long-standing member of our local garden club, Jinny was the first person I met in the club when I joined—she welcomed me then and always with a friendly smile. In 2013 when I participated in the garden club’s floral design classes, she was one of the excellent teachers. I appreciated Jinny’s encouragement and am ever grateful for her inspiration.

I am looking forward to experimenting with this vase so you may see it often.

      Thank you Kris! Yes, do be tempted. I saw many of the vases this week when I went to collect mine and many are exceptional. (Actually returning today to pick up one more that I saw the other day and decided I had to have it.)

    I agree with Kris’s comment above – the Callas are so elegant and your neutral coloured vase is ideal as well as being rather sophisticated. I don’t know why, but I had to think of Audrey Hepburn the moment I saw this! 😃

      Thank you! Love Audrey Hepburn reference, Cathy! She was always so graceful. I like the fact the vase is neutral. It has a strong presence but not based on color, so it should be very versatile.
