Welcome to January 2016.  I am joining Cathy at https://ramblinginthegarden.wordpress.com with her weekly meme.  The in a vase on Monday is a great start to the week and I encourage all of you to take a look at some of the other vases submitted.  If you are inspired to take part, remember to add a link back to her site.

I admit this Monday my offering is hardly an arrangement, barely a vase full.20160104-101423-36863462.jpg  Three Hellebores and a snip of Viburnum bodnantense New Dawn.

Really it is more like a pot of samples, a selection for identification. Nothing artistic.


Yet they are beautiful.  Shy faced Hellebore, exposing their faces early this year due to El Nino.


Trumpets of show-stopping scent from New Dawn.

Back to school and work, 2016 is a go-go.  Judging by the early starts out in the garden, it may be interesting.  Have a great week and let us all hope the rain stops soon.  Enough already.
