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.
Camellia x ‘Coral Delight’
Narcissus ‘Thalia’ (Thalia Daffodil)
Textured, incised ceramic pedestal vase, rice or bone color. 5×6-inches, with floral pin holder.
Thanks to our host Cathy at Rambling In The Garden for providing this opportunity to share our vases. Visit her to discover what garden surprises she and others are enjoying this week.
Nothing shouts ‘welcome spring’ more than these two beauties.
Thanks! Happy Spring to you Judy.
Loving the coral camellia. I need to find one.
Glad you like it Judy. I bought mine at a retail garden center. It was a Monrovia plant. Seems to be available online.
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
There’s that beautiful Camellia! It’s a gorgeous color, which the Narcissus complements without competing with it.
Thank you Kris!
Definitely delightful – love the color combination with the vase. Is the vase vintage? It speaks of 70s architecture to me.
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.
Whoever you got the vases from is happy they’re so loved .
Beautiful coral color and the white bells of narcissi ‘pealing’ over them is perfect!
Thanks for your imaginative description of the daffodils. There’s something special about Thalias.
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.
Gardeners always have to edit.
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.
Wonderful! So elegant. Those coral camellia are in perfect condition and are a lovely colour.
Thanks. I’m enjoying them so much this year.
