In a Vase on Monday - A Touch of Class

“După război, pasiunea pentru gradină a venit spre mine cu o forță pe care nu am cunoscut-o înainte. Flori peste tot, în grădini, în case, în spitale, în fiecare colț de stradă, flori, flori în semn de speranță și credință. Și după aceea am creat grădini peste tot unde m-am dus, grădini colorate, grădini pentru memorie, pentru bucurie și frumusețe”(Regina Maria). Anemone pentru regină, la 140 de ani pe 29 octombrie./ ”After the war, the passion for gardens came to me with a force that I had never experienced before. Flowers everywhere, in the gardens, in houses, in hospitals, at every street corner, flowers as a sign of hope and faith. And after that I created gardens wherever I went, colourful gardens, gardens for memory, for joy and beauty” ( Queen Maria of Romania). Anemones for the Queen, 140 on the 29th of October.

  1. The pure white Anemones shine so brightly in the fall sunshine, their centers like little suns! The lace bow on the vase is a nice touch, Anca.

  2. A most lovely and elegant tribute Anca. I don't know anything about Queen Maria but it sounds as if she was a lady who loved flowers.
