In a Vase, on Monday – Small Beauties

I’m joining Cathy today with a tiny vase (likely originally a condiment or oil jar of some sort) filled with tiny blooms produced by small sprung bulbs: Muscari (both the blue two-toned M. latifolium and a diminutive white variety), Narcissus ‘Quail’ and a summer snowflake – Leucojum aestivum.

The vase was filled and photographed last Friday because the forecast for the weekend looked, at the time, extremely wet… It did indeed rain parts of Saturday and Sunday, but I was also able to get out and continue with the garden spring clean-up, a bit at least.

Have a great week everyone!


  1. I absolutely adore the small early spring bulbs that pop up giving us a bit of color and delight. You captured them perfectly in your delightful vase.

  2. Ah, more grape hyacinth! I just mentioned earlier that I spent much of my childhood pulling it as a weed, but am now growing it because I miss it so much. I thought that I got rid of it several years ago, but found a few surviving bulbs in the same garden about two years ago. That is what I am growing it from now.

  3. Your teeny vase looks like a vintage ink bottle to me, Chris – those would have been produced in Canada too, I am sure? It makes for a great vase for your tiny blooms and I am pleased you were still able to get out over the weekend and continue with your spring clean-up
