In a vase on Monday – #StandWithUkraine


Spring flowers in a vase in support of the people of Ukraine

I just read that the Queen posed with Justin Trudeau in front of a massive vase of blue and yellow flowers as a gesture of support for Ukraine. Well, my blue and yellow vase for today’s In a Vase on Monday meme, regularly hosted by Cathy@ramblinginthegarden, is tiny in comparison, but is honestly meant nevertheless.

The flowers are a simple mixture of :

Iris reticulata ‘Clairette’
Pulmonaria officinalis (common lungwort)
and an Eryngium spike, which was preserved for its dusty blue colour, from a lovely flower arrangement sent by my sister when we lost our dog, Sadie, before Christmas.

    Lovely sentiment and endearing flowers.

    Blue and yellow floral arrangements have garnered a lot of attention lately for good reason. Yours is lovely.

    This really is lovely. The pastel yellows and blues fit together as nicely as sunflowers and a blue sky. To be honest, in a forced choice I might take yours!

    What a lovely gesture, Allison – and I hadn’t heard about the Queen and JT’s so will go and check that out too

    Ukraine is constantly on our minds, the people and the country is in a dreadful plight. A lovely bouquet.

    Flowers say it better than words can, sometimes.

    A beautiful show of support….feeling spring in your vase!

  8. Love the sentiment and the flowers. Reminded me of a picture of an old lady on the Moscow underground, cleverly signaling her views by wearing a blue headscarf and yellow coat.
