In a Vase, On Monday – Tulip Time

My first attempt at a vase of tulips looked a bit flat. The tulips were gorgeous, yes, but something felt missing, so I went back into the garden and snipped a few long pieces of garden chives (Allium schoenoprasum), a single leaf from a Lupine plus several tall Summer Snowflake (Leucojum aestivum). The graceful, delicate, nodding flowers of the latter add some dignity to the roughness of the vase, I think, as well as beauty, and I hope it’s a fitting tribute to Cathy’s sister Janet. Cathy hosts a weekly gardening meme on her site, Rambling in the Garden, where she she encourages gardeners around the world to bring a bit of the beauty from the natural world indoors.
