In a vase on Tuesday

No, not a new meme!  But I have so many flowers that I thought I would see if it were possible to create a vase every day for a week.

I thought the light might be better on the stairs, but I was wrong!

A lot of the Aster isn't very visible in this image, the vase looks more balanced in life.

  1. This is really lovely Christina and quite inspiring, your home is going to smell amazing by the end of the week. I have filled two vases with Sweet Peas this morning, which I was quite pleased about but a vase every day, that is impressive.

    • Ah! Sweet peas, I would so love to have those; I was never very lucky with them even in England and here was a disaster – much, much too hot! But I might try some in the greenhouse as Julie at Peony and Posies did this year, I might have a few weeks of very early flowers.

  2. I know you will achieve your vase each day, Christina, and I look forward to seeing a different focus every time. There are so many interesting seedheads around so it is intriguing to see the ones you have used today. I have about 5 vases on the go at the moment if you include the ‘offcuts’ – including a dahlia bud that surprisingly is opening.

    • I usually do all the vases at once so I thought it would be more fun to do one a day; I want to use as many of the flowers as possible as I’ll probably be coming to the UK next week. Good that your dahlia bud is opening, was it tightly closed when you picked it or just opening?
