After a week of gray skies and rain, this week’s arrangement brightens the room thanks to the large-cupped daffodil, Narcissus ‘Salome.’ It opens a pale, peachy-yellow and soon deepens to salmon.
A few branches from our flowering quince hedge (Chaenomeles speciosa), with its deep coral blossoms, add more color.
A double, pale-yellow tulip with peach tinges (sorry, I don’t know the cultivar since it was planted years ago) showed up in the garden and since the rain caused it to bend over, I snipped it to add to the bouquet. Lastly, I added white, lacy candytuft (Iberis sempervirens) for filler.
The sweet vase of a girl with a parasol is Royal Doulton (art from a 1920s children’s book illustrator) and a gift from my sister long ago.
Thanks to Cathy at Rambling In the Garden, who hosts a weekly meme to showcase what is blooming in our gardens by creating arrangements to enjoy inside our homes.
