In a Vase on Monday

I have often said that reading interesting and varied blogs is a bit like peeling an onion.  You can find other blogs mentioned within the one you are reading and move on to visit them.   Actually it is more like pass the parcel with a little goodie inside each layer.  Let me explain a bit more.  I love looking at Liz’s blog  Gwirrel’s Garden and when viewing her latest post “In a Vase on Monday“, I discovered Cathy’s blog Rambling in the Garden and her post “In a Vase on Monday“.

Excellent idea for a Monday post which I have joined in today.

I have a large selection of little jugs that I have collected over the years, ideal for small posies of flowers from the garden.

This little posy, consists of Dahlias, Fennel Seedheads, white Cosmos “Seashells”, Nigella seedheads and a pretty, un-named White patio rose and a couple of Calendula flowers.

VASE 1 (765x1024)



Pay Cathy’s blog a visit by clicking HERE and enjoy unpeeling the layers as you find other bloggers’ contributions to In a Vase on Monday.



  1. Lovely vase – the flowers are just beautiful and I love the frothiness of the fennel and nigella seed heads. I, too, have a collection of jugs – I should say a growing collection as I can’t resist them. I’m now a subscriber because like you I ‘hurtled to 60 and’ I’m now way beyond so I think we may have a lot in common 🙂


  2. That is so pretty Ronnie, I am glad you found Cathy via Liz and joined in the fun. Like Cathy I really like the way the fennel adds another texture, I really must try using it myself one of these weeks.


  3. So summery! Altho’ sun pouring in here and if I don’t look at weather down the south of here, southern North Island and South Island where a very cold snowy snap is. Makes a difference if sun out and my little nest gets it all day if it is!!!!!


  4. Hi Ronnie,

    Lovely little posy; lovely colours and reminds me I really need to have umbellifers in the garden again (and nigella).
