In a Vase on Monday: A Red Peony

Once again I have spent several days contemplating the contents of my Monday vase for the In a Vase on Monday meme, in which we show a seasonal vase of flowers picked from our own gardens. The first early peonies are going over already, but the others are just starting to open. This red one is stunning, although with no fragrance…

With some Euphorbia and Alchemilla, and a single strand of Fennel, this peony stands out even better.

And this week I even have a prop to go with my flowers…

A surprise parcel arrived this morning – a handmade beaded glass cover from my sweet and talented sister!

I think it’s beautiful, and wish I was able to make things like this.

We finally have blue skies again today, so finding a photo spot was not as tricky as last week!

Hope you have a sunny week, and why not take a look at some of the other In a Vase on Monday posts which are linked on Cathy’s page at Rambling in the Garden.

Thanks for hosting Cathy!
