Aquelegia vulgaris, in a vase on Monday, kosta boda glass, Lavandula stoechas, tulips, white ranunculus
A quick pick from the garden for this Bank holiday Monday. Purples from Aquelegia vulgaris and French lavender, Lavandula stoechas, greens thanks to a sprig of mint and Rosemary with a white Ranunculus and some of the peachy tulips.
The vase or tumbler is Swedish hand blown opaque glass by Kosta Boda, about the right size for what are rather short stems.
All rather pale, pretty and feminine. Just right for a bedside or dressing table perhaps, not that I have one but that is where I imagine they would suit.
I hope you have had a good Monday and taken a look at Cathys blog https://ramblinginthegarden.wordpress.com to see what else is appearing in a vase on Monday.
Have a good week.
I love your girly bunch, very romantic! My stoechas is also dancing through the garden.
Dancing? How wonderful

What a lovely bunch of spring blooms…I love the purple Aquelegia and the pastels especially the tulips and Ranunculus.
The tulip buds are gorgeous, as of course are your ranunculus – have you grown the ranunculus outside? Any tips? Good to start seeing aquilegia – mine are SO close to flowering! Nice glass too. Thanks for sharing
The ranunculus are outside in raised beds on a south facing terrace which is quite sheltered. Drainage is also much better than in my main garden which is heavy clay. Thats it. More luck than judgement.
The tulips and ranunculus look wonderful together, very femimine. What a pretty vase too.
Thank you Chloris
