In A Vase On Monday - Hello Spring!


The flowers of late winter and early spring 
occupy places in our hearts well out of proportion to their size.
~ Gertrude S. Wister


This week's In A Vase On Monday offering is the tiniest of posies. There's miniature daffodils, Narcissus 'Tête á Tête', cowslips, Primula Veris, and the last of the winter jasmine, Jasminum nudiflorum. Because they are all so tiny, this amber glass jug was the only one I had small enough to hold them. 

And so I say, hello Spring! Surely it won't be too long before I'll be picking the bigger daffodils, followed by celandines and then the bluebells. I can't wait.

And now an update on the second vase I posted last week.
The red stemmed dogwood, Cornus Alba 'Siberian Pearls' has, after being in the red and white polka dot jug for two weeks, has provided me with quite a surprise by not only putting on leaf but also by bursting into flower!

Enjoy your week,

So sweet Elizabeth - I love teeny tiny posies :) Your Tete a Tete seems really early - or was it grown inside in a pot? And such an early cowslip too! You must feel so lucky to have them blooming - and thrilled that your cornus has come into flower from last week. Thanks for sharing

A daffodil already! Spring must be on its way. I love the vase of yellow posies but I'd be thrilled to see leaves and flowers bursting from a dormant stem too!

So sweet, it's so good to begin to see some colour.

ps I bought some little shot glasses in a charity shop for tiny flowers. They are just right.
