In a Vase on Monday: A Rainbow of Flowers

Cathy at Rambling in the Garden, who hosts this weekly meme, has posted a beautiful photo of her vase from Scotland this week and it seems they had some glorious sunshine on Easter Sunday.

Here, April began true to its reputation; with wind, rain, hail, sleet and tiny bursts of sunshine in between. Luckily I had picked my flowers for today’s vase on Saturday, for a table decoration on Saturday evening.  🙂



I went out between showers with the scissors and a little bowl in my hands, wondering if I would find enough for a small arrangement, and what a pleasant surprise it was to find I could stuff this vase full! The vase has two compartments, each with three ‘vases’, and is perfect for short-stemmed flowers.

In the above picture, from left to right:

Red Bellis (from a spring pot), Pink Glory of the Snow (Chionodoxa), purple and yellow crocus, small Narcissus, purple Primula, blue Glory of the Snow, blue Hepatica, Hazel catkins, Early Harvest tulip, Viola, another daffodil, more crocuses and a creamy yellow primula, pink scilla, a snowdrop (possibly the last), more of the same and in the last vase the early pink tulip I still haven’t identified, a white crocus, and the first Pulmonaria to flower in pink and white.

Thanks to Cathy as always, and a wonderful week to you all!
