In A Vase On Monday – Spring Delight

In A Vase On Monday – Spring Delight

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

Several stems of spring-flowering Coral Delight camellias form the foundation of today’s vase while snow white Thalia daffodils dance above.

    Whether you are generous or sparse with the blooms in your vases they are always so well-balanced. Those Thalia blooms are so elegant, aren’t they? Thanks for sharing

      Thanks Cathy. Last year I had very few Thalias and I am so happy to see them doing better this year. I agree, they are an elegant daffodil.

        And I did have some, but no longer, and yet I would have expected them to come back. Hope yours continue to do better

      Thanks Amy. The vase was recently acquired from the estate of a late garden club member who was a horticulture judge. She had an extensive collection. (Last week’s vase was hers too.) Not sure of its age but it works with everything I’ve tried it with so far.

    Delightful. 😃 The colour of those camellia flowers is exquisite, and I love the spring imagery of the snowy narcissi hovering above them. Your flowers are always so perfect and undamaged by rain or frost too!

      Thanks Cathy! It’s so nice to use the first flowers of the season, before having to deadhead, etc. A few camellias were caught in a deep freeze a couple weeks ago but the buds were ok.

    Love, love, love coral and the contrast with the white…so beautiful and I bet those daffs smell incredible!

    ‘Thalia’ daffodil was one of the few that I considered trying, because it is white. I just can not get myself to do it. I know it looks simple enough, but it is not as simple as ‘King Alfred’ and common peperwhites.

        Edit? I have no problem with that. I just have difficulty trying new things, especially when I am already satisfied with something that is simpler.
