Sometimes flowers are so beautiful or so striking they can carry a vase on its own. I am talking about the ubiquitous Hydrangea arborescens Annabelle.

To my mind and eye, nothing further is needed. Well water of course but you know what I mean.


The shades of green, the masses of tiny flowers, the imperfect spheres.


Are these slightly early this year? I think perhaps they are. In any event they are very welcome and appreciated for their calming shades of green. I have been given these stems from a friend who has lots and lots in her walled garden. Gardeners are generous folk, don’t you think?

Anyway I am loving them and enjoying their presence in my living room.

This is my vase on Monday and probably for every day this week as they will last well.

Joining Cathy and bloggers from far and wide. If you have something to put in vase from your garden, do take a picture and share it with us and link it back to Cathy’s blog.

Have a good week wherever you are and thanks for reading. D.
