In a (tiny) Vase on Monday

In a (tiny) Vase on Monday

After an out-of-town trip (only 24 hours), I was missing my garden.  Funny how quickly that happens.

Painful signs of our lack of rain awaited me, but some blooms just won’t be stopped.

I gathered a small handful of stems and put them in a new little vase that jumped into my shopping cart a few weeks ago.

In this vase you’ll find: verbena bonariensis, zinnias, a piece of plum yew, a foxtail fern, a bit of river fern, a piece of primrose Jasmine, and a small stem (not visible in the photo, sadly) of flowering senna.

Just a smattering of sweet blooms can brighten up any room in the house.  Check out more beautiful flowers at the hostess of In a Vase on Monday, Rambling in the Garden,  at .

Happy Monday!

    Small vases can pack a large punch!

    Oh yes, even 24 hours can be too much – and a ramble round the garden is always the first thing on my return (after the loo, of course!) . I can hardly believe how much you have packed into your teeny vase – and don’t the greens work well with both the zingy zinnias and the softe purple verbena? Thanks for sharing, Diana

    Tiny cases are often the best ones – you have to be selective about what you add!
