This week I've chosen tulips again for my vase as they are really the only large flowers currently blooming. I think this one is 'Greenland'.
This vase is a recent find in our local house clearance warehouse. We discovered the place last year and it is a real treat to rummage through. Can you believe I dithered over this urn shaped vase (at £2)? But really you can't buy every vase, this is a good addition to my collection though being tall and having a narrow neck.
Also in the vase is Raspberry foliage. It's possible to have a forest of this if you haven't been vigilant about pruning, tying up and weeding. The prickles are very soft yet though so not hard to work with.
Wallflowers again, sorry Cathy, pale yellow annual ones and some flower of my perennial one. I've mislaid the name but the colours tone beautifully with the tulips.
Finally a few flowers of pale Corydalis. They tend to drop petals quickly but I think if you cut it early when the flowers are just opening, it will last a few days.
As my raspberries are in the shade this afternoon, this is the perfect day for a tidy up. Better late than never though I might need a machete to fight my way in.
Join in with Cathy at Rambling in the Garden and see what you can find to put In a Vase On Monday. If you are in the UK do enjoy the holiday.
