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!
