In A Vase On Monday – Accents Of Silvery-Green

Every Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden encourages us to share a vase with materials gathered from our gardens.

This Monday after Christmas Saint Nicholas sits atop the mantel. A gift from a neighbor, the silvery green epiphyte-bearing Christmas spirit joins a similarly-colored, small hydrangea cluster left in place since summer.

Hydrangea macrophylla

We had a delightful Christmas weekend spent with family. Good wishes to everyone this holiday season. Thanks to Cathy at Rambling In The Garden for hosting each week.

    So, . . . will that figurine stay out all year, or be separated from its tillandsia? It looks like the tillandsia is just sitting on a circle of that wire, so could be removed until next year, although it will be a bit larger by then.

    That’s a splendid use of a Tillandsia, Susie! Love the Hydrangea – I wish I could grow them as I’m starting to value plants that dry well more than I’ve ever done in the past.

    Oh Suzie I like your Santa with his flowing beard and living green staff. The hydrangea head looks most effective too. Sounds as if you had the best sort of Christmas weekend and I hope that you escaped the worst of that dreadful winter storm 😀

    Your little St Nicholas really is a cutie, Susie – love his hat and his ‘broom’; together with your hydrangea head they make a pleasingly simple and appropriate Boxing Day vase. Thanks so much for sharing it, and I am so pleased you had such a lovely family weekend
