In A Vase On Monday ~ Spring Bling
The last week has seen some most balmy weather and with more apparently on the way the daffodils will soon be going over. With this in mind I picked a trio of those which were not out in time for last week's vase - these being 'Minnow', 'Toto' and 'Sailboat'. I was entranced by the latter which I initially came across over at 'Lead Up The Garden Path', so many thanks to Pauline for prompting me to add these to my bulb list last autumn. I planted them in pots but having seen them in the flesh will definitely order more to plant in the borders later this year. A few sprigs of omphalodes cappadocica 'Cherry Ingram' then snuck their way in. The vase still felt as if there were some holes to be filled so it followed me round the garden where a couple of stems of pulmonaria jumped in the vase. I'm not absolutely sure which one it is but think that it is 'Blakes Silver', which I have to make a conscious effort not to refer to it as 'Blake's Seven'.
The little vase is one of set of four purchased recently from a well know discount supermarket. Each has its own motif. This one is my favourite of the set.
My Monday has mainly been spent travelling on a train with three changes en route so it has been quite relaxing to unwind in the garden, with a hot drink in one hand and my snipers in the other. Thanks as always to Cathy over at 'Rambling In The Garden' who enables us to share our vases each Monday.
