In A Vase On Monday – Easter Bouquet

In A Vase On Monday – Easter Bouquet

Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share a vase of materials gathered from our gardens. Monday here was gray and cold. Great quantities of much-needed rain fell from early morning until late afternoon and I spent the day cocooned under a quilt with a book.

So here it is Tuesday, sunny yet still chilly. Although a day late I prepared a vase and filled it with Easter hues. The flowers are not at their best after being battered about yesterday, but their colors sing the season.

      I have you to thank for the narcissus Eliza because I noticed your beautiful fancy ones last year and decided to order some. They’ve been so fun.

    I wish all my flowers looked that good when battered, Susie. I don’t think that arrangement could be any more perfect. I love the color mix and of course the peonies, which cause a deep sigh on sight.

      Thanks so much Kris. The peonies have held up this week but the irises in the arrangement were creased and worn from the rain. We needed the rain so I can’t complain.

    Oh how glorious, Susie – the peonies make a wonderful focal point and the soft shades of the other material really complement them. Thanks for sharing it with us 👍 You will have heen pleased to have had some rain, I think?

      Thanks Cathy. It’s fun to see these peonies again. And, yes, the rain was very welcome. Last summer was so dry–hoping not to have a repeat this year.

    Your gorgeous bouquet reminds of those in a book about flowers in paintings given to me by a friend recently. Hope you had a lovely Easter, Susie.

    ‘Immortality’ is one of my favorites in picture. (Four white bearded iris live here, but none are ‘Immortality’. I actually acquired them from other gardens, so did not actually select them.) Yet, ‘Orinoco Flow’ is awesome also. You know, there are some flowers that somehow excel in certain colors.

    The peonies are so lovely, and you have found some ideal companions for them. Hope your weather warms up. It is still very chilly and so windy here, but that’s April!

    Oh, now that is gorgeous! I’ve always enjoyed peonies and irises in arrangements together, and the color of your peonies is extra special. My peonies and irises probably won’t bloom for another month…especially this year, as everything is late with our chilly weather.
