In a Vase on Monday


My bay tree needed cutting back – what a delicious scent!

The voluptuous large jug on the left is Victorian, bought at auction in the 1970’s as part of a washstand set, the one on the right a modern little cousin.

So glad to be joining Cathy and all the other gardeners from around the world ‘In a Vase on Monday’.

  1. Lovely, I bet it smells wonderful and then you can use it to cook with. I had a golden bay tree that seeded itself in the garden. Alas I moved on and didn’t​’ bring them with me.


  2. Beautiful composition. Imagine the smell is luscious.

  3. Simplicity at its best. Beautiful foliage and containers. I grow Bay here in Florida – my eating nearly outpaces the Bay Leaf production, yours look much better.

  4. Those jugs make excellent vases, Daffy and I love the ‘voluptuous’ one! The green of the leaves is striking against the white, very pretty 🙂

  5. That beautiful clump of green looks wonderful against its stark white surround. And you get scent too! I have a bay laurel hedge but it doesn’t produce cuttings nearly as attractive.

    • I do like green and white together. This bay was already in the garden when I bought the house, it does seem to be a really nice one with longer-narrower leaves than some I have seen.


  6. What a treat! I’d be drying them for culinary purposes. They look really healthy leaves too.

  9. Wow – it must be a really healthy bay tree Sandra! I have been thinking about having one in a pot but am not sure yet where I could put it so am still undecided 😉
