In a Vase on Monday: Hesperantha

There are still a few Hesperantha or Kafir Lily, or River Lily blooming in the garden. They seem to like my soggy garden.

I try to get rid of the arum plants but they are very persistent and the leaves do cheer up a vase at this time of year.

The little green pot with a labyrinth was sold as a nightlight holder, but makes a sweet vase.

These 3 different types of moss seem to grow happily together in an old saucer on the bathroom windowsill. In another life I might like to study all the different types of moss – fascinating.

I found this on the Woodland Trust website about UK mosses.

I am joining Cathy for her regular feature: ‘In a Vase on Monday’.

A lovely way to start the New Year.

  3. What a gorgeous vase Sandra! I love the flowers and foliage together, but they look even better in your collection of wood logs and the moss. I read a book all about moss years ago and bought myself a magnifying glass to hang around my neck while out and about so I could inspect different sorts. It is fascinating stuff close up! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

  6. You know how much I liked your pale pink hesperantha, Sandra, so it was like seeing an old friend again, and the mossy saucer is really pretty too. Lots of moss here, as you will have noted!!

    I love the moss bowl creation. The Hesperantha are beautiful. Every time I see those flowers, I think I should try growing them, but if they like moist soil I guess that’s a non-starter ;(

  10. I like all elements of your Monday vase. The Hesperantha is lovely. Is it growing indoors or outside? The moss is beautiful–great idea to grow it indoors. My arum has finally disappeared after years of me feeling guilty. I bought it before knowing it’s listed as invasive here. The patterns are wonderful. And of course, the labyrinth vase itself is intriguing. Happy New Year!
