Tete-a-tete

a few Tete-a-tetes  transplanted from my friend’s garden (accidentally came with other gifted flowers!)

It has been quite a while since I’ve joined the meme “In a Vase on Monday” with Cathy at Rambling in the Garden https://ramblinginthegarden.wordpress.com .  This weekend just allowed me the time/energy/ability to gather together a small vase of sweet flowers, so I thought I’d humbly join back into the group.  Feel free to join in, or just go and have a look at what others have in their vases. There is always something nice to see!

We live in what we describe as a “wind belt”.  It is always windy. Really windy.  So I feared my wee little vase wouldn’t stand a chance and would be knocked over before I could even take a picture.  My solution was to partially push it into the soil of the garden.  I think that provided rather nice surroundings, too. 🙂

My friend Susan also gave me a Pulmonaria plant and suggested they look well with daffodils.  I couldn’t agree more.  I have them planted in among my daffodils, but my daffodils come up so late!  So I’ve cut some of the Pulmonaria and thrown them in a vase with my early blooming tete-a-tetes to enjoy that lovely colour combination.

The sun came out for a total of five minutes (after I had taken loads of pictures, of course).  I’m used to how this works, so I grabbed the vase and ran outside and took a load more photos!

You can really see the size difference in this photo. I should have put the full size daffodils in a separate vase, but I only had two to work with.
