In a Vase on Monday: Easter Week

I am happy to join Cathy at Rambling in the Garden with a vase this week. Yes, Spring has gone into second gear and will no doubt accelerate rapidly now and I have a few flowers to share!

My little vase contains narcissi (Jetfire I think) and primulas.

The Easter Lamb in the background has been with me for some years now, and I do have a soft spot for her. πŸ˜‰

A closer look at the dear little jug that my Mum gave me a few years ago…

I forgot to photograph the inside before filling it, but there a few bird eggs on the base inside. πŸ˜ƒ

The big double primula was purchased recently for a pot and smells amazing! A bit like lemon fizz! πŸ˜‰

Wishing you all a sunny Easter week!

  1. What a sweet little vignette, Cathy, so festive. I love your little birdie jug and glass eggs. I haven’t decorated for Easter since the kids have grown, but do miss the bunny/chick/lamb/egg theme. πŸ™‚

  2. Wow, that is a bit primula! I really should get out more to see if primula such as these are available here. I have never seen them in nurseries, but do not get to nurseries often.

    • This one didn’t catch my eye at first, but my nose! It is such a lovely scent as well as being amazing to look at. I have no idea if it will perform next year once planted in the garden, but am enjoying it now.

  3. Yes, such a pretty tableau, and I love the little detail you mentioned of eggs on the inside of the jug! That’s an astonishing primula – and to have such a fragrance too! I am so pleased you were able to share this with us today, Cathy

    • Thanks Cathy. It’s good to be bringing flowers indoors again. I may have to float some more hellebores soon! Oh, and next time I use the jug I’ll take a photo of the inside. πŸ˜ƒ

    • Hi Diana. I have no recollection of where I found those glass egss, but I do find them rather fascinating. They remind of the marbles I had as a child. πŸ˜ƒ

  4. Oh that’s a most attractive seasonal vase full of spring yellowness Cathy. Hope that you have a good Easter and that the sun shines down on you and your garden.

  5. Oh, such a lovely little jug! Is it English? I’ve developed a slight addiction to English pottery ;). Gorgeous, sunny posy too and the bunnies made me smile. It’s good that there’s so much to do at this time of year. Wishing you both a sunny Easter weekend with lots of hugs and laughter xx

    • Wishing you the same Annette. Yes, it’s an English jug that my Mum picked up somewhere, possibly from a shop in a National Trust property! πŸ˜‰

  6. Cathy I love your jug painted with little birds: it is ideal for a vase, and with eggs inside it is a love. Daffodils and primrose, especially the double primrose I love. Your Easter Lamb is lovely, I love it. The rabbits are gorgeous and the crystal eggs are divine, I love them. It is a wonderful Easter decoration. That you continue with sun and good weather. Happy Easter. Very affectionate greetings from Margarita πŸ˜€πŸ˜˜πŸ‡πŸ₯šπŸŒ·πŸŒΈ

    • Thank you Margarita. Itbis still warm and sunny, but not as warm as it was as we had a brisk north east wind today! Have a lovely Easter!

      • Thanks Cathy. It has been raining here on Wednesday and Holy Thursday. I hope your wind disappears and the good weather continues. Enjoy Easter. Very affectionate greetings from Margarita.
