As mentioned in yesterday’s brief post, I finally got out into the garden on Sunday for an extended session. However, my enthusiastic chopping back resulted in a few casualties so I put them on one side to add to a vase.
The first two blooms were Cerinthe, and then some rather leggy Erysimum ‘Red Jep’.
Consequently, I thought initially I might make a rather strong ‘jewel’coloured vase, but I was so excited to see all the daffodils blooming that I changed tack completely and went for a much more vanilla look, with the Erysimum in particular largely lost in the mix.
To various white Hellebores I added some of my favourite ‘Jenny’ Narcissi.
I have no idea where the yellow pot came from, but I like the way it picks up on Jenny’s trumpets. It could have done with some chicken wire inside to help keep things in place, but it’s all holding steady so far.
Hoping you all have a wonderful ‘springy’ week, whatever the weatherman says!
With thanks to Cathy who hosts all our Monday vases.
