In a Vase On Monday

There have been some lovely posts over the last few weeks with vases of flower arrangements on a Monday – organized by Cathy at Rambling in the Garden.

I have been following Susie at pbm garden and Christina at My Hesperides Garden with their contributions, both admiring and envying their talent! When I saw Susie’s pretty daffodil post this morning I had, by coincidence, just picked some violets and put them in this little violet jug which I inherited from my Nanna many years ago…

  1. Oh Cathy, this is so pretty! I can’t ever get enough of that shade. Thanks for also providing the links to Susie at pbm.garden. Since we share the same name, and some of the same propensities, I will check out her site and follow her too.

    • Hi Susan! I’m glad you’ll visit Susie. She is very talented at arranging her flowers, whereas mine really were just “put” in the jug and that was that! LOL! Have a nice week!

    • I also think it’s a lovely idea to fill a vase with flowers from your own garden every week… I don’t think my garden will produce much more then a posy before Easter though!

      • I know what you mean. I’ve often dreamed of a cutting garden. One summer two years ago I grew the most spectacular cosmos. I can take no credit, as I believe they were planted by squirrels. They made gorgeous arrangements though, and continued to produce for weeks.

  2. This is so pretty, I love the vintage vase and story.
    What a great idea to post posies on a Monday….might have to join in….but this Monday my flowers were still growing in the soil 🙂

  3. And it really is a simple as that – and what pleasure it will give you, particularly using your Nanna’s vase 🙂 How long would you expect the violets to last? Thanks you so much for joining in and do come again!

  4. What a lovely contribution Cathy. Your jug looks perfect filled with violets and how lucky you are to have inherited it from your grandmother.

  5. A very lovely picture “Blue violets in Nanna´s vase”! I like it – gives to me a romantical, and nostalgic feeling..

  6. This is so beautiful Cathy. You captured the mood perfectly of the intensely colored violets and I just adore the special vase from your grandmother! They fit together so well. I use to have wild violets at my former garden and they always brightened my window sill in the kitchen. Glad you joined in. susie

  7. This is just lovely, Cathy, and the flowers suit the vase perfectly (and vice versa). The scent must be great. Look forward to more of your creations!
