Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share a vase of materials gathered from our gardens.
Last weekend’s sleet and freezing rain cleared quickly, but next we had deep cold and (a beautiful) snow this past weekend. In the throes of winter I find myself grateful for the plant therapy multiple gifts of Amaryllis have provided.
They look beautiful blooming on the plant, they last well in a vase. These particular Amaryllis, wildly prolific, were a gift from our sweet niece and husband, Julie and Gordon.
Usually I prepare my Monday vase a day early, but yesterday found me uncertain as to how to use the Amaryllis. This morning an idea came, though it soon evolved, as usual, toward a different concept. I followed along.
As I was fussing over some detail, sunlight burst into the foyer through a large upper story window. Light, announcing itself a ready participant, became the final element in the design. I grabbed the camera.
