In a Vase on Monday: May Bouquet

Mondays (today a rather damp one) are cheered every week with this lovely meme hosted by Cathy at Rambling in the Garden.

With glorious sunshine and temperatures climbing above the 20 degree mark I spent a lot of the weekend outdoors, also taking the opportunity to pick some wild flowers growing in various parts of the garden. I was especially pleased to see some Harebells as well as all the gorgeous Ragged Robin (which has an equally pretty name in German: Kuckucks-Lichtnelke, literally ‘cuckoo light carnation’).

I added some Euphorbia cyparissias, (spurge, or in German ‘wolf’s milk’ – Wolfsmilch), Leucanthemum vulgare (Moon Daisies), pink clover, cow parsley (just starting to open here) and buttercups as well as a few grasses.

Harebells always make me smile, as we have a lot of hares in this area and I like to imagine the hares playing with these flowers! 😉

From above you can see the variety of wild flowers and grasses a little better.

Thanks to Cathy and all the other vase makers brightening up the start to the week!
