In A Vase On Monday – Spring Temperament

Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share a vase highlighting what is growing in our gardens.

I gathered blooms early on this frosty morning. Since then the thermometer has risen to 69°.

The temperament of spring is fresh, cheerful and light-hearted and the flowers featured today are convincing ambassadors of the season. I photographed them in several locations—none of the spots was a clear winner but the cup of springtime treasures seemed to smile in each one. Hope they bring a smile to you today.

Visible in the background are the phalaenopsis orchids that graciously rebloomed recently.

Camellia x ‘Coral Delight’ is elegant in form and color. This is my only spring-blooming camellia.

After a few years Leucojum has formed a nice clump and perhaps can be divided. I grouped the stems together in the vase for more impact against the showier anemone.

Thalia daffodils are just beginning to open. They may well be the favorites among my garden’s narcissus. I massed them as well to one side.

    Oh the shade of green of the cup is a lovely fresh contrast with these bright blooms – an absolute delight and I am so pleased you had time to create it, for your own benefit as well as ours

      That lime green mug seems to work well with early spring colors. Making a vase each wekk is very satisfying. As always, thanks so much for hosting us. I know it takes a tremendous amount of time each week. We appreciate you!

        Aw thanks Susie, I am so glad you find making your Monday vases so satisfying – yes, it does take a little time, but facilitating it is rewarding, especially when I hear how much the contributors get out of it. Hosting it is a privilege.

    Springtime in a mug! It’s a lovely mix of colors. I thought that beautiful Camellia was a rose at first glance, perhaps because my own Camellias have already bid adieu.

        I’m afraid it is the news – it gets to be a bit overwhelming. On the bright side, the snow is melting and today reached the low 60s. AND the snowdrops are up! Over all, a good day. 🙂

    Ah, some of my favorites. I have not grown anemone in many years though. Snowflake is what I grow instead of snowdrop, and only because it just appeared in the garden without being planted.
