In A Vase On Monday—Pink And White

In A Vase On Monday – Pink And White

Monday brings the chance to share cut flowers from the garden by joining in Cathy’s weekly challenge In A Vase On Monday.

I am smitten by the beauty of anemones. For today’s offering a hand-painted Fenton Glass vase picks up the rose pink of Anemone coronaria ‘Harmony Orchid,’ a recent addition to the garden.   The white of A. coronaria ‘The Bride’ introduces movement and light.

Aesthetically, odd numbers work better, so one more anemone of either color might have improved the design, but there were no more to be found this week.

Dark green foliage and the pink and white flowers of Daphne odora fill out the arrangement.

    Happy leap day to you too, Susie. Of course I love this vase, how could I not when it has my favourite Anemones. I haven’t seen ‘Harmony Orchid’ before, it’s much more delicate than Sylphide isn’t it?

      Christina, I was drawn to these pink anemones in my local garden center yesterday thinking they were the same as your Sylphide. ‘Harmony Orchid’ seems to be a little more lavender perhaps? I’ve only seen Sulphide in photos. (I also bought one ‘Harmony Blue’ but wanted the entire flat.)

      Thank you Annette. It’s nice when everything all comes together. My sister gave me that years ago and I haven’t used it often to hold flowers, mostly it’s just been on display.

    Your flowers couldn’t have a better match than that vase, Susie! I continue to envy your anemones. Other than a little foliage, I’ve yet to see any sign of anemones in my own garden this year – February was just too warm, I suppose.

      Hi Kris, don’t know what made me think of that vase for today but I’m glad I noticed and used it. You many still see your anemones–sure hope so. The ones I planted in fall haven’t done well either, only one so far showing a bit of green.

      Thanks Donna. My sister will be pleased to know the vase was so well-liked. I’ve never had anemones that were pink before, and the vase worked out great.

    Such a perfect vase for your flowers this week Susie!! I love anemones as well and am very sad that I seem to have lost the plants in my garden. I will have to plant some more in the autumn and in the meantime I can enjoy yours.

      Thanks Julie! I’m happy to have a few to share. I planted quite a lot last fall but so far those aren’t showing signs of foliage. Hope you have a great week.

    That vase is amazing, a perfect vase for the colors of your flowers, Susie. Your sisters are great at gifting. It will be while before any anemones appear here. The Daphnes must smell heavenly!

      Thanks Hannah. The daphne’s bloom and fragrance has been superb this year. It’s planted near the front steps so we can enjoy it every time we pass.

    You know how much I love those anemones Susie, and your vase is so pretty and the perfect match. The word ‘nostalgia’ came to mind. 🙂

      Thanks Cathy! Yes, they are nostalgic or old-fashioned. Last year I had anemones well into June so I hope they do as well this year.

    Somehow this arrangement reminds me of a fairy tale. I’m still trying to figure out why; maybe the combination of colors.
