In A Vase On Monday – March Mingle

In A Vase On Monday – March Mingle

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

In A Vase On Monday – March Mingle

I gathered flowers from the garden on Friday ahead of predicted storms on Saturday and deep freezing temperatures Sunday morning.  I knew the camellia that has just begun flowering could suffer damage so it was the first stop.

Camellia x ‘Coral Delight’

I hadn’t grown hyacinths in several years so was excited this week when they began unfolding. I brought in five to enjoy. Their fragrance is nearly overpowering, even from the foyer where this week’s arrangement sits.

Hyacinth Orientalis Shades of Blue

The hyacinths along with the foliage and aged hellebores create one of my favorite color studies—a rich, yet peaceful, combination of blues and greens.

Greens And Blues (or Purples)

Bright sprigs of white spiraea help create contrast against the dark hyacinths.

Visible from the side angle, at the back right corner and at front center are a couple of pieces of cerinthe that overwintered in the meditation circle. The plant had seemingly shaken off the strains of winter and was just starting to bloom. Fingers crossed it will pull through the weekend’s weather challenge.
