There is a warming illumination from this September light.
Ornamental gourds, grown from seed, looking so very colourful in my glass pot.
Enjoy your Friday, wherever you are and thanks for reading. D.
Today’s vase is a simple collection of Spring taken from the garden and plonked in the turquoise milk glass jug I acquired from a charity shop for £2. The jug is such a rich colour for glass and it seems to be a good contrast to the yellows, blues and pinks in the garden today. A dark pink Hyacinth, a couple of tiny, but perfect in their miniature form, of daff. these are the dwarf, rich yellow daffodil, Narcissus ‘Tete a Tete’, as well as a few of the dark blue/purple Grape hyacinth, Muscari.
Pale and quite perfect in their delicate tones of pinks and yellow are the Primoses: Primula vulgaris, Primula veris and Primula denticulata. I love to see these in the garden as they bring to mind memories of making Easter cards at school in Shannon.
There are also a couple of sprigs from Pulmonaria which have a lovely mix of blue and pink flowers on each stem. I think I am right in saying that this is Pulmonaria officianlis which has grown from a piece Jill passed over the hedge to me.
The scent of the Hyacinth is filling the kitchen as I write this, and I fear it will have to go outside, before those who suffer with allergies, begin to sneeze. I will enjoy it while I can. If you enjoy the in a vase post take a look at some of the other bloggers posts including Cathy at Ramblinginthegarden and Chloris at thebloominggarden. Do take a look and be inspired.
This is my tiny vase today. The Snowdrops are beginning to turn, finishing their season. There is a slight browning to the edges. If you are thinking of dividing or planting some snowdrops you will need to do it soon.
Their scent is strong, their trio of petals white against the black mat I am standing them on. The trio of pebbles are by Jane of Anything Arty. Jane. paints on pebbles. Little treasures. See her Etsy page of the same name.
