I am joining in with Cathy‘s ‘In a Vase on Monday’ meme this week, but as it is Easter I am doing it a day early, so that I can have a nice fresh vase for when the family comes for lunch.
I have a little French Dubarry cracked egg vase which is perfect for Easter arrangements.
I put the arrangement in the birdbath to photograph it in natural light. There are so many jewel-like flowers out in the Spring garden to match the colours on the vase.
The flowers I used are three little Narcissus. There is a N.’Bridal Veil” which I had left in the greenhouse from last year; also Narcissus ‘Tete-Tete’ and the tiny N.canaliculatus.
I used lots of different sorts of Primula, Pulmonaria, a tiny Tulip clusiana, Muscari, Iris lazica, a small Hyacinth, the white bells of Leucojum aestivum, the scrambling Akebia pentaphylla which is just coming out, some starry white flowers of Skimmia japonica subsp. ‘Reevesiana’ and some orange leaves of the Spiraea japonica ‘Goldflame’.
Tomorrow, if you go over to RamblingintheGarden, you can join in with Cathy’s meme ‘In a Vase on Monday’ and see what everyone else is enjoying in their Easter vases.
Meanwhile Happy Easter!
