Aquilegia vulgaris, bank holiday monday, chaos, Geum Totally Tangerine, hellebore hybrid, in a vase on Monday, persicaria bistorta, scented tulips, Tulip Queen of the Night
Bank holidays always seem a bit chaotic to me: engineering works, early closing, late opening, feels like a Sunday but it’s a Monday. Today, so too, my vase is a bit chaotic.
There are tulips and geums, hellebores and geraniums, persicarias and aquilegias. Flowers of early Spring mixed with early Summer perennials.
The colours are a mixed up bunch, lime with purple, pinks and reds with shades of orange.
The living room is in chaos thanks to newspapers and revision folders, half done filing and stacks of garden cushions waiting to be aired. With no where suitable to photograph the vase, I resorted to a rather precarious hand held bunch of snaps.
The vase is an Irn-bru shade of glass, a bit weird but somehow in keeping with this motley crew.
If you have a few minutes, pop over to Cathy to see her vase for today and enjoy looking at vases from around the world thanks to the immense popularity of this meme. Should you fancy joining in, do so and be sure to link back to Cathy.
I hope you had a good weekend and enjoy the rest of your week.

A lovely way to mark the start of May and its abundance of colour.
And I thought it was the colour of your water! How lovely to see the mix of spring and early summer – I think that might be creeping into my vase next week now that aquilegia are about to flower. Surely your persicaria is early? Good luck with the revision!
Spring is a bit chaotic so your vase just reflects that, love the tulips.
Thanks Christina the tulips are beginning to go over which is such a shame still they are captured in our pictures until next year
That is what spring is all about – the abundance of colours that sometimes dazzle a bit! Love the vase, which actually. ade me think of Lucozade. 😉 Hope the rest of your Monday was not too chaotic. Ours ended in heavy rain, but fortunately only after a lovely ramble in the Bavarian countryside! 🙂
Evening rain is the best sort. And a ramble is a lovely way to spend a day, sounds perfect Cathy
Love it! I have just the one persicaria flower out now, so I think that you are ahead of us here. Nice soft tones from the geum and hellebore.
Thank you. Persicaria bistort is the earliest to flower I think

It’s an exuberant collection which reflects the season. Lots of fun and very cheerful.
