Today is the first day of spring and so to celebrate I have a vase of seasonal bits and bobs for Cathy's In A Vase.
|Cowslips - Primula veris|
|Helleborus niger 'Christmas Carol' and lungwort, Pulmonaria 'Blue Ensign'|
For me this combination of blue and yellow just says springtime even though, dotted around the garden, there are just a few other colours, mainly from the old wallflowers that have been producing a bloom or two since January but are now really getting going. Here's a few shots of what I spotted during my wander.
|Clematis 'Broughton Bride'|
And there's no forgetting the many daffodils that are still brightening up my days.
The windblown flowers are cut to fill even more vases with their golden loveliness.
Cathy is celebrating five years of blogging at Rambling In The Garden so do pop over to see the fabulous vase, hand painted by her daughter, saved for this very occasion.
