Hello there! I would first like to start with an apology. I have not had a chance to reply to the lovely folks who commented on my post last week. I know, I feel terrible. As well as that, I haven’t had a chance to visit the blogs that I so enjoy seeing and reading. It is only because of lack of time, and I’m planning on catching up this week. I hope you’ll forgive me!

The task at hand is posting for “In a Vase on Monday”, a fun meme hosted by Cathy of Rambling in the Garden (https://ramblinginthegarden.wordpress.com/2015/04/06/in-a-vase-on-monday-having-my-cake-and-eating-it/ ) . After reading her lovely post about her Vase, you can then follow the links to others who always have something interesting to see!
How many varieties do I have?
Today I feature two different varieties of daffodils. I wasn’t able to find their names, unfortunately. The white variety came from my father-in-law. He gave me a bunch of bulbs a few years ago. The flowers are quite delicate looking. He is an amazing gardener! Here is a little peek at his daffodils:
They completely cover the back garden! It is lovely to see.
all yellow, with so many layers
The yellow narcissi are a dwarf variety. I have them planted out by our fence. They are new to us this year, so I know I have their name written down somewhere!
Highland Stoneware from Scotland
My vase this week is a Highland Stoneware jug which I picked up a few years ago on a “get-away” weekend with my husband. We went to Edinburgh to watch Ireland play rugby. Nice romantic weekend away just me, hubby, and 50,000 supporters 😉 It really was a lovely weekend (and thankfully, Ireland won!).

Perfectly glorious weather
I actually put this arrangement together today (Monday), as opposed to the usual Saturday before. Being Easter Monday, everyone had off of work, and the weather was simply perfect.
beautiful blue skies
We worked in the garden most of the weekend. I’m pretty sure every muscle in my body was used! The garden needed so much work. I am so, so happy with all that we were able to get done. I just might get an actual gardening post in this week (fingers crossed!).

Too pretty not to photograph
I did manage a number of breaks during the day as I simply felt compelled to take pictures. Everything in spring time is so pretty.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you are enjoying lovely spring weather, too!
