In A Vase On Monday – Standing Together

In A Vase On Monday – Standing Together

Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share a vase of materials gathered from our gardens.

Blue containers, yellow flowers. I have no sunflowers to feature this morning but perhaps you will agree daffodils are appropriate.

Among the most democratic of flowers, daffodils are long-lasting, easy for everyone to grow,  rewarding to pass-along. A great equalizer, this time of year nearly every house in North Carolina, large or small, shares a few bright yellow blooms with passersby.

The courageous flowers amaze us with their resilience. They are stalwarts, consoling us after a long winter, gladdening our hearts, filling us with optimism, giving notice of renewal. While they cannot bring peace they can symbolize a brighter way to lead and live.

    Yellow is a magnificently joyous colour, and you are so right about daffodils. So pleased they grow well where you live in Carolina. The contrast with the blue is perfect.

    Oh how lovely, Susie, and so many on bloom at the same time – they really do seem to mark a change in the season, don’t they? And blue is always the perfect fol for them too. What a bright start to the day – thank you!

      Thanks Cathy. I shared the flowers with neighbors and kept the last few that hadn’t fit in the vases. Daffodils seem to set the stage for the spring show.

    A beautiful testimonial, Susie. Hopefully, by the time the sunflowers bloom, the conflict in the Ukraine will have ended with peace and the retention of independence.

    That is quite a bit of yellow! I had to look at the flag of Ukraine because I could not remember that the yellow is below the blue. But of course, that would not have worked well in this situation.

    A spot on colour combination and a lovely thought … lets hope for some sunnier things, not just daffodils, in the world this week …
