In a Vase on Monday - second bloom

Azi le-am ales pe cele care au înflorit a doua oară, mixandre, salvie albastră, pansele și weigela, îmi place că nu s-au lăsat și au mai încercat o dată ( iar vasul și colierul sunt din Grecia, care mi-e dragă, că ne-a primit frumos de multe ori și apoi, vorba lui Shelley, într-un fel sau altul” we are all Greeks”)./ Today I have picked flowers that have just entered a much smaller second bloom cycle -  Matthiola incana, blue Salvia, pansies and Weigela. I like their struggle of not giving up and do it again. Both the glass vase and the necklace are from Greece, a country I like as it has made us feel great several times and because, as Percy B. Shelley says, in a way or another ” we are all Greeks”.

  3. So pretty, Anca! I love Matthiola for its color range, shape and scent. The few I had this year are long gone so it's nice to see yours this week.

  5. Beautiful flowers. I like the smaller flowers too... in a jam jar or tiny vase on a bedside table. Perfect.

  6. What lovely colours - and for some reason the vase made me think of coloured ribbons. The matthiola is especially stunning. Thanks for sharing
