I am really getting into Cathy’s weekly meme – In a Vase on Monday. As someone who has never really embraced picking flowers from the garden or arranging flowers it is becoming a bit of a revelation to me. To the point where last weekend I went to a flea fair with my eldest and came home with a couple of small vases including the blue patterned jug and bowl above. I knew I wanted to use the jug for narcissus as I think they would make wonderful combination, however on reflection I decided to use a different blue and white vase again, like last week, with an oriental theme.
The narcissus are the from around the garden and show what a variety I have accumulated over the last few years. I hadn’t realised there were so many different ones and I have to admit to forgetting the names of many. I know there is Sophie’s Choice, Pheasants Eye, Tete a Tete, Thalia, Cheerfulness in there. I obviously have a preference for the white and paler yellow narcissus.
The real benefit of cutting the narcissus and bringing them indoors is that I get to benefit from their scent which I often miss in the garden. I have also realised that by bringing some flowers in each week I get to enjoy the garden in the evenings when I get back from work. I am even toying with taking some to work to put on my desk!!
