Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share a vase of materials gathered from our gardens.
This week I offer an arc of delicately colored hellebores in creams and soft pinks, a set of summer snowflakes, and a pair of spirea stems with flowers beginning to unfold.
Beneath the standing flowers, additional hellebores rest gently, floating atop the pool of cool water.
Helleborus x hybridus (Lenten rose)
Leucojum aestivum (summer snowflake)
Spiraea prunifolia (bridal wreath spiraea)
Black metal suiban. 4 x 9.5 x 6.5 inches. Japan.
It was warm when I gathered the flowers on Saturday so before arranging them I placed them in water overnight to recover from the stress. By the next morning about half had drooped significantly. Others were fine.
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.
