Monday is when Cathy at Rambling in the Garden hosts her meme A vase of Flowers from the garden. Do check out what others have managed to find this week or better still why not join in this week yourself?
My favourite combination is yellow daffodils in a blue jug.
I haven’t had much luck with daffodils here in Italy; I used to grow masses on the allotment I had in England and was able to pick armfuls for weeks and weeks. This is ALL my daffodils this year (I will plant some more in autumn and try to water them when they need it. The pleasure they bring would be worth the effort.
The blue plate displayed with the jug is made of papier mâche and was given to us filled with sugared almonds when we were married. The text is the wedding promises in Italian (we’ve always loved all (most) things Italian even before we moved here ten years ago.
I forgot to add information about how long the flowers from last week are surviving. Not that well is the answer, two reasons, mainly because when I picked the flowers I chose those that had already been open for a while so they haven’t lasted more than a week. The second reason is also my fault, I forgot to add water to the vase and they were obviously very thirsty flowers. So something to remember Anemones should be picked just as they open their flowers and give them WATER!
