In a Vase on Monday – Sunshine Yellow and Blue

Cathy at Rambling in the Garden asks us each Monday to find flowers in our gardens to pick and bring into our homes; this new habit has certainly improved my experience of Monday mornings, as I’m sure it has for many others; if you haven’t yet joined in, do be brave – it’s spring and there are so many lovely flowers to enjoy and share.

Last Friday was International Womens’ Day and I had enough flowers to prepare a large vase of blossom for a friend who hosted a lunch to celebrate the day and for a small vase for another friend whose birthday it was.

Sorry, this was photographed in a rush.  The vase for my friend included: Anemone coronaria ‘The Bride’, A green Hellebore, Wild plum blossom, Viburnum tinus, and Prostrate rosemary.

Prostrate Rosemary, it seems a much stronger blue at the moment

My own vase is simple today with just Prostrate Rosemary and Tulip Crystal Star.
