In a Vase on Monday: Creeping in late … like Spring

Spring blooms

OK, so it is Tuesday, but I did pick the flowers yesterday and I have just read that Cathy is celebrating 6 years blogging, so it seems a shame not to congratulate her on this happy meme (IaVoM). Well done Cathy and hope to enjoy many more vases with you!

It’s March and in between deluges, my front garden is looking really quite cheerful now, with ever increasing clumps of tete-a-tete daffs scattered about, particularly on the days when they manage to lift their cute little heads from the snow and frost. But what I really love at the moment are the contrasting blues beginning to extend the colour range with the likes of anemone blanda, pulmonaria and muscari.

So I’ve picked a few of these little gems to make a spring posey and I am hoping that the spring equinox today breaks winter’s hold or at least its run of repeat performances!

This morning I ate my breakfast in a cloud of delicious scent. It was just wonderful.

    What a lovely posy of spring flowers. I, too, love the spring blues. Fingers crossed it’s spring properly from now on…

    • Yes … even though we’ve escaped the worst of the weather here, I will be so glad to turn that corner. One good thing is that we’ve got bluebells to look forward to soon!

  4. Beautiful spring bouquet! Happy Spring….
