In a Vase on Monday

Between April showers and bursts of sunshine I managed to cut some Periwinkle and Hellebores for today’s vase… keeping it simple just seemed right when I put these two together in the vase.


I also think the Hellebores still look lovely after so many weeks in flower, and wanted very much to make the most of them and bring some indoors. The tulips are getting battered by the wind, but I still didn’t have the heart to cut some. I did, however, cut a few of the white daffodils “Thalia”, which I immediately regretted as I realised the moment I got indoors that the scent would be too overpowering.

By the way, the wooden egg in today’s photo belongs to my wooden duck, Nora. She’s a bit shy, but I managed to get a photo of her here too…


Both Nora and her egg were a birthday gift a few years ago from my big sister. 😉

Thanks to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for hosting In a Vase on Monday. Do take a look at some of the other vases again this week, which will be linked to on her post. Her vase is gorgeous this week!
