In a Vase on Monday – A Spring Posy

I think I may have said this before, but it is often only seeing posts by others that I suddenly notice the garden really does have variety of choice for flower arrangements, no matter how small the flowers are.   Harriet Rycroft posted the prettiest posy on Instagram yesterday, which inspired me to venture into the garden with a carefully selected vintage cream jug from the jug shelf and a pair or scissors. 


The cream jug is one of many that I collect as they catch my eye.  Sadly they frequently collect more dust than being used for arrangements, something I must address.   I chose this one in particular because of the pretty soft blue and yellow wash around it. 


Scrambling my way in behind shrubs at the bottom of the garden into the tiny wild bit where lots of primroses grow, I picked just a few.  It must be a throw back but I always feel I am being naughty picking primroses! Am I the only one?  Then I chose a couple of Anemone ‘blanda’ and a stem of Chionodoxa which had whilted slightly.  


I grow a lot of Tête-à-tête daffodils, although I have often come across double headed ones, this is the first quadruple headed daffodil I have come across.  It is great for a posy, filling it at the flower end but not taking up extra room at the stem end. 


Proving I have given thought to my In Vase on Monday posy, to bring the colours together I added a few purple and yellow violas.  I adore violas, they have such sunny happy faces and are great for a hanging basket by the front door.  They always smile and say ‘Welcome Home’ – they do to me anyway!


Thank you Cathy from Rambling in the Garden for hosting this meme.  Cathy always has interesting and delightful flower arrangements on In a Vase Monday.   Check it out, this Monday she has a display in colours of the Union Jack.

    Bit of an emotional struggle whether to pick flowers for a vase or leave them to bloom in the garden but your pictures have helped me decide to “just do it”! Beautiful simple arrangements and great photos.
