Monday Vase: Amaryllis and Hellebore

Joining in with Cathy’s meme In a Vase on Monday, over at Rambling in the Garden


Cee’s Flower of the Day


I’ll be going to Chelsea Flower Show with my sister again this year, I was just looking at their website to see information about this year’s gardens and – there we are! On the 2017 RHS Chelsea website!


and here


We were on the ‘Chive’ stand, I do like their vases. I have a couple of square ones which have featured in IAVOM before, here and here in July 2016and a Giraffe vase, yet to make it’s debut.

We were chosen for the photograph because of our colourful attire – see, we fit right in –  and because we looked like we were having fun – we were!

We were told by the photographer that we might be in this year’s catalogue, but I never thought we would end up on the website – twice!


We’re thinking of wearing the same things this year.

    • I really do love whites and greens together in all sorts of places – I even had a very pale green lining under a voile skirt as my wedding dress all those years ago (eeek! 1972!)
      The photo certainly added to the magic of the day at Chelsea.

  8. I would never have thought of combining those two flowers, yet they look so graceful together.

    • Me neither! The Amaryllis toppled over so I had to cut the stem, and the Hellebores were ones I had cut back in the garden – there they were lying on the kitchen work-top together – serendipity. So glad you like the combination.

  10. Your amaryllis and hellebore are beautiful – the blend of green and white in the different elements works so well. Well done and thanks for sharing. I remember you talking about the Chive website which I looked at and there was almost too much choice of lovely vases – but I am going to Chatsworth this year so perhaps they will be there too and I can make up my mind easier by handling the vases! How exciting (?) to be very publically photographed like that – but it was agreat shot and great publicity for Chive. Did you know Christina and I are meeting up on the Monday of Chelsea week? Are you just coming down for the Tuesday?

  11. I love your little vase. How marvellous to have been photoed. I think it calls for brand new colourful clothes.

  13. What fun to be chosen to be on the website. You ladies look like you are having a blast and are color coordinated. Your vase is gorgeous this week. The muted colors go so well together. You have that color coordination going again.

    • I’m all for a bit of colour co-ordination – playing with colour, shape and texture is what this Wild Daffodil likes to do best!
      We had a brilliant day – I wonder what this year holds in store.

  16. Really? Wow! Mind you, the colours you are both wearing are a photographer’s dream because look how well you match the display! What an honour.

    • Yes Deb, we were chosen because of what we were wearing. It was fun – my sister used to be in advertising so she knew the score. We had a lovely chat with the photographer afterwards. I can’t wait to see if we are in the catalogue as well!
