In a vase on Monday

20200531_141515~2Today’s vase was a wedding gift. Very heavy blue glass with a magenta dimple in the base. This not very subtle vase is about 14″ tall and surprisingly looks well with almost any content.

The little frog netsuke I bought in a market in China before the sale of ivory was banned.

The rhododendron was rescued from the dead plant department in the early days of my garden. The flowers are huge.20200529_165948

I added some heuchera foliage and flower stems to help the rhodies simmer down a bit.


Thank you Cathy for hosting. Enjoy more vases in the comments section.

  1. The stamens look as if they have little silver beads on the end of them, particularly in the second picture! The heuchera foliage is a good choice, and I have a leaf I picked several weeks ago and didn’t use but it is still perfectly healthy in a pot of water on the windowsill
