Well, with all the jam trees (old Chivers damson trees) in the garden bursting into flower over the last few days I couldn’t resist cutting a few branches to bring inside. I noticed the first blossoms opening when I went out to observe the full (Worm) moon on the night of the vernal equinox. What a lovely start to spring!
So I’ve put some of the flowering twigs in a vase to join Cathy for her weekly floriferous meme ‘In a vase on Monday’. Hop across to her blog for a chance to enjoy a host of beautiful spring blooms as like-minded folk link to their own vases through the comment section.
A vase containing damson blossom, daffodils and polyanthus:
I’ve used a generous amount of a red polyanthus in the vase, because over the weekend I needed to move a large clump and I took the opportunity to cut all the stems rather than watch them flop over in their new positions (I decided to divide the patch while I was at it).
To link the blossom and primula I’ve added three different white daffodils to the mix. Narcissus ‘Cheerfulness’:
Plus a couple of stems of N. ‘Paperwhite’.
The pretty bronze leaves are fresh growth from a small spirea shrub in the front garden.
And another nice thing about this vase is that is smells lovely.
Which flowers are you bringing in to enjoy?
