In a Vase on Monday: An Early Spring Posy

This posy is posing beautifully for my Monday vase, as I join Cathy at Rambling in the Garden and the many other participants of her lovely meme.

Crocus in yellow, white and purple, red and white Hellebores, a snowdrop or two, a sprig of Mahonia foliage, and Dwarf Iris – the pale one with yellow markings and blue veins is ‘Katherine Hodgkin’, which loves this dry spot.

Which side do you like best?

Or how about this?

Or this?

I think she is rather vain, this posy… but doesn’t she have reason to be?

  1. Man kann die Vase drehen wie Karussell, die Farben und die BlΓΌten sind aus jedem Winkel schΓΆn anzuschauen. πŸ™‚ Daylight – spring – dreams!

  2. Oh, possibly the mifddle one, but I couldn’t say why πŸ˜‰ Isn’t it good to have these early spring flowers to pop in a vase though? You must be thrilled after your long winter πŸ™‚

    • πŸ™‚ Oh yes, spring is coming along really slowly after all that frosty weather we had, but that allows me time to enjoy it for a change. πŸ˜‰

    • The yellow crocus are the first flower to appear here and when I see one peeping out of the leaves and winter debris it is like finding gold!

  3. Hiya Cathy with the hat,
    That blue of the little I. danfordia[?] stands out so clearly. What a pretty concoction.
    BTW, do you like making a posy in your hand, by adding flowers one at a time? I know there is a word for that, but words escape me these days ….

    • I. danfordia are yellow I think. This blue one must be one of the I. histrioides which range from blue to purple. I very often put my flowers for a vase together that way, arranging them in my hand as I walk around the garden, only occasionally rearranging them indoors. πŸ™‚

    • They last longer in the garden! Although one of the hellebores still looks fine, all the others have faded now. Still, that was three days. πŸ™‚
