First Vase of Spring

IMG_1822At last, the earth is beginning to awaken here in New England and the spring bulbs are cheering us with their happy flowers. All are miniatures, so it is a small vase, my first vase of the year!spring arrangement

The daffodil buds are Narcissus ‘Jetfire,’ accompanying light-blue Striped Squill (Puschkinia scilloides), Snowdrops (Galanthus nivalis), and a purple Crocus (self-sown) plucked from the lawn, with a few sprigs of evergreen Wooly Speedwell (Veronica incana)ย to finish.

    Spring miniatures are the prettiest I love your little posy and the puschkinia are a perfect match for the vase. Is it the photo or do you have two colours? Mine are all blue like the ones on the right, but the middle ones look violet.

    So so beautiful! If you published a book with photos of your vases and flowers, I would buy it! I just bought a book called, A Tree in the House by Annabelle Hickson and it is so lovely. Let me know if you ever decide to publish a volume with your images, I’ll be your first customer.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Judy. Because of the length of our winter, I focus on planting miniatures that are the first to bloom. Winter goes on long enough; I am always ready to boot it out the door!

  33. Really lovely Eliza. The striped squill is new to me, an attractive addition to the bouquet.

  34. Oh yay!!! It’s that time of year again … spring vase time! Beautiful.!Although not showing a vase the last is may favorite … a very nice composition.
