In a Vase on Monday: Narcissi

buddha with narcissi

My lovely daughter picked these for me from her garden – their scent is soft with smells of Spring.

They sit with Buddha who is always surrounded by little bits and pieces given and gathered.

Last week I stayed in The Hayloft for a couple of days and this vase greeted me in the hall.ย narcissi and crochet

My Coastal Cosyย blanket started to grow.

I am happy to highly recommend the Hayloft, it is the best Airbnb I’ve stayed in by far. Such a warm welcome, a generous welcome hamper and beautiful ambience. It is just a 4 minute drive from Nymans, which is a wonderful place to visit.Nymans, National Trust

Fascinating buildings, beautiful magnolias

trunk, pergola

and what a wisteria trunk! This pergola must be a dream to walk later in the year.

Now let’s go and see what Cathy has popped into her Vase this Monnday.

  7. Now that’s one wonderful holiday rental! I loved the adorned Buddha too. I admit I’ve never left any offerings for my own garden Buddha – I should remedy that!

    Those lovely flowers are just perfect with Buddha. If ever I should come across the pond, you can be sure I’ll stay at the Hayloft and visit Nymans.

  14. Your narcissi are lovely! Buddha looks very content sitting beside them. Must checkout the Hayloft as that is not too far from us.

  15. I am delighted to see another home where Buddha is bedecked with special mementos and seasonal offerings! The wisteria trunk is a beauty, I should like to see that in all it’s drapery come summer!!

    • Ah! You have a bedecked Buddha too Pauline! My little corner of peace and happiness. The ribbon draped aroiund the Buddha’s neck was made for me by a friend as a Christmas decoration some years ago – I don’t ‘do’ Christmas nowadays but I love the lariat she made.
      That Wisteria must be glorious in summer – almost worth the 3 hour drive to see it again!

  16. Looks like you had a great time away. Surprised at such an abundance of Narcissi still in flower and I was very fascinated by the collection of items gathered around the Buddha.

    • Yes I think these are late varieties of narcissi. I wondered about listing the items and the stories attached to them, but I think that might have taken me all week!
