In a vase on Monday – Feast or famine!

Having missed IaVoM for a few weeks, I’m back with three vases today.

We had a houseful at the weekend with the mother in law plus extras and so that, combined with the lovely spring blooms, prompted me to run around the garden like a mad thing while the OH went to fetch them from the hoverport.

Firstly, another arrangement in the little milk bottle circle, this time with the Narcissi in the Bronze Bed, both ‘Cragford’ and ‘Yazz’, with some Spiraea for spring zing.  I’ve used this approach before notably here for my book club ladies, but that time I managed to find five of the pots, this time only three were available, but they did the same job of providing a centre piece when the centre has an umbrella running through it!IMG_4689

And finally some new little vases making their debut in the downstairs loo!

One of the joys of my daughter now working in London is that we sometimes have a bought breakfast together before work.  Last Thursday morning (at 8.30!) she wanted to go ‘frock shopping’ ahead of a weekend away, so I was trailing after her into H&M when I spotted these lovely little bottles.   They were heavier and more solid than I’d anticipated (to be honest I thought they’d be so light that as soon as you’d placed your bloom the bottle would be over) so I treated myself.

I’ve arranged them here, supposedly in decreasing trumpet colour order, but really the last three are pretty much pure white.  I’m not sure of all of them but number 2 is ‘Lieke’, number 3 ‘Jenny’ and number 5 ‘Thalia’.  And I added some more Spiraea because I’m obsessed with that colour at this time of year!IMG_5877 (2)

Why don’t you go over to Cathy’s blog to see what others have shared for their floral spring flings?

    Oh don’t they look fresh, Jen, partly with the spiraea foliage and partly because of the contrast between the white and yellow on the trumpets. So much prettier than all yellow daffs. Thanks for sharing – and hope you coped with your house-ful!
