First flowers from the garden

April 4, 2011

On a rainy Monday morning, I thought we needed some flowers and sunshine. Yesterday I picked some of the first spring flowers in the garden: miniature daffodils, flowering currant, grape hyacinths, primulas and tiny shy violas. Here they are on the kitchen table, in the sunshine of Sunday afternoon.



For a further flowery fix, see also Friday flowers.

    I always love the haphazard colourfulness of tiny posies picked from the garden. Lovely.

      Me too – give me these over a stiff florist’s bouquet any day. (Well, unless it were peonies, which I adore and don’t have in the garden!)

    Now isn’t that just the most charming arrangement? What could express springtime more delightfully? and they must be a particular joy to see coming through in the garden after the snows and the freezings!

      Oh, they are. In fact I am enjoying the whole gentle unfurling of spring so much this year, as last year it all happened very late, in one hurried fortnight.

      Nice to hear from you!

    Very lovely, very Country Living. Or perhaps Country Living is very you.

    Interesting that you are having a slow Spring. Down here in tropical Edinburgh it seems very fast.

    I got my magnolia stellata posted at last!

      Mm, yes, I probably am a bit more Country Living than Country Life. Though they both annoy the hell out of me at times.

      I’m off to have a peek at your magnolia now!
