Spring Flowers

spring flowersI made a little birthday bouquet for a young friend who was celebrating her 11th year last week. She’s been a garden buddy since she was a toddler and I hope that she will be for many years to come!

Pink Hyacinth, small-cup and split-corolla Narcissi, Tulipa ‘Analita,’ a few buds of Epimedium × versicolor and Viburnum carlesii, and greens are Lonicera tatarica and sprigs of Acer rubrum.

Linking to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for In a Vase on Monday. Click link to see what other gardeners are arranging this week.

    Lovely combination and I imagine the hyacinth smells heavenly.

    We tend to underestimate the value of flowers – both in the garden and in the vase – in terms of their power to lift one’s spirit. These look lovely.

  8. How sweet to have such a young gardening buddy. Imagine how wise she shall be when she reaches our age from all you can teach her. What a thoughtful gift that I’m sure delighted her.

    Happy Birthday to your gardening buddy! A pretty, nature-bouquet. Almost time for violet tea! (I just heard a bird bonk against the window…it flew away)

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Alice. Yes, tea this week if she can clear a time in her busy schedule. 😉
      Oh, those spring birds – I guess we need to draw the shades or net our windows.
