Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share a vase of materials gathered from our gardens.
I usually like to prepare my vase on Sunday but felt too indecisive. Being out in the garden early this morning was not a bad thing though. It was sunny, already above freezing and now just after 11 a.m. it is 57°F. and heading toward 66°F.
I returned indoors with snips of hellebores, daffodils and pansies, winter daphne, spirea and gardenia foliage, set to work. Eventually I found myself emerging from a satisfying floral meditation.
Belying the serene atmosphere in which it was created, the resulting arrangement feels rather festive and full of energy.
Daphne odora (Winter daphne)
Helleborus x hybridus (Lenten rose)
Pansy ‘Delta™ Berry Tart Mix’ (Viola × wittrockiana)
Pansy ‘Panola® Purple’ (Viola × wittrockiana)
Textured, incised ceramic pedestal vase, rice or bone color. 5×6-inches. Red wooden platter.
