In A Vase On Monday – Daffodils In Green Vase

As each week begins Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share a vase of materials gathered from our gardens.

In A Vase On Monday – Daffodils In Green Vase

The increasing hours of daylight are a gift that cannot go unremarked.  Spring is in the air. Since last Monday one small patch of Tete-a-Tete daffodils opened with conviction, dancing and swaying in the sunlight (yay, there was actual sunshine the past week). I filled the vase with a mass of the solid yellow flowers.

Tips of spiraea branches still in tight bud were used to lighten and lift the design.

      Thanks Noelle, I think I like it at least “as much” in this early green form. The spirea is late opening this year, as is everything.

      Thanks Amy. Exactly was I was going for–classic. Wish the photos were better. The spirea is sending out dozens of shoots (I guess, forming a colony). Actually thinking of taking it out but our birds love to hide among the branches.

    And you have massed blooms today too, Susie! Abundance like this will always make an impact but adding the spiraea really does add little ‘je ne sais quoi’ – and I love the vase. Just so tactile – I would love to cup it in my hands! Thanks for sharing.

      Thanks so much Cathy. The vase belonged to some dear late friends. The wife gave it to me for a present one year soon after we toured many of the local potteries around Seagrove (in North Carolina).

    When your garden delivers flowers, Susie, it seems to do so by the armful! There’s nothing more cheerful than Narcissus, nor anything that says SPRING quite as clearly. The Spiraea stems were a nice touch too.

      This may be the week spring arrives here. 63 and sunny this afternoon and should be nice all week. I need to get busy cleaning up the garden but other errands first.

      Yes, thanks Malc. I’ve placed the daffodils on our mantel and can glance up frequently. You’re right too–I am smiling! Take care!

    Spirea is rad! There is not much of it here, and I do not know what Spirea prunifolia is, but the few I see look so elegant, like something from New England.

    A bowl of sunshine, you just can’t beat daffodils for shouting out ‘Spring!’ I love the vase too and as always with you, impeccably presented.
