Yesterday, Monday, when this post should have been posted was just one of those BAD days; involving a visit to the dentist with an abscess and a broken tooth. no need for sympathy I now have pain-killers that work, antibiotics to fight the infection and an appointment for next Monday for the removal of the tooth. But I didn’t feel up to doing anything, not even posting about my vase this week. So I am joining with Cathy at Rambling in the Garden a day late.
We had my husband’s goddaughter and her new husband to stay for the weekend so I was very much hoping that I would find something to put into a vase. On Friday with all my fingers crossed, I checked the pots in the greenhouse with the previously chilled tulip bulbs; joy of joys there were 3 Tulip ‘Exotic Emperor’ just beginning to show some white.
By Monday all three tulip blooms had grown to be above the lip of the vase
Anemone coronaria ‘The Bride’ has had some blooms for a few weeks, I thought they would be a good addition to the tulips.
Sorry, not a good image, my mixed bag of snowdrops is now producing a number of blooms, I spared just one for my vase.
I tried to hide the floral pins with some Cyprus foliage, I didn’t make a very good job on this side of the vase!
T. ‘Exotic Emperor’ is one of my very favourite tulips so I’m sure I will be sharing more of them with you in future vases. Several other varieties are in bud but the cold beginning to the winter here means that they are slow to be ready to pick. Looking forward to seeing your vases today.
