My local garden centre was selling off hyacinths relatively cheaply so in the front border they go. I cut off the flowers to help them concentrate on settling in and there was my ‘Vase’.
I love this time of year when the border is so full of promise – the aquilegias, love-in-the-mist, iris, lychnis, monbretia, wild strawberries are all leafing up nicely and the forget-me-knots and primroses, hellebores and pulmonaria are in flower.
The blooms are in a pottery Japanese tea cup, which I have used before. No sooner had I placed the vase to take the photograph than a bee was investigating.
The sun is shining! Hurray!
