In a Vase on Monday - Shades of Pink

Lumea parcă și-a ieșit din minți și a-ți face vaza de luni e ca o necesară întoarcere la frumos. Azi e una de toamnă și în culori care mi se pare că se potrivesc - diversele nuanțe de roz ale crizantemelor, punctate de violetul unei micsandre, de un iberis umbrellata rătăcit prin grădină, o ”gură de leu”, o frunză de Nandine și câteva fire de calluna și verdele turquoise al unui vas Casa Vivante, cumpărat de curând./ It seems like the  world is getting out of its mind and arranging a Monday bouquet with flowers from my garden is more than ever a necessary weekly focus on beautiful things. Today my vase is an autumn one in colours that I think go very well together - beautiful shades of pink of the chrysanthemums, brightened by a purple Mathiola Incata, an Iberis umbrellata, a  Snapdragon, a leaf of Nandine and a few Calluna  threads and the turquoise of a Casa Vivante vase that I have bought recently.

  7. The pink mums are fabulous, Anca, and I like all your accompaniments of purple and small sprays of flowers. Purple, pink, and turquoise were my clothing combination for me and my daughters when they were growing up so all our clothes would coordinate. The vase is very lovely.

  8. Anca, the way your nandina picks up the color in the handle of your new vase adds a nice touch. Beautiful container and the chrysanthemums look great.

  11. I agree with you, Anca, let's focus on the beauty around us. Your mums remind me of arrangements I made in school (we only had about three types of flowers to work with) and mums were #1. I love their scent, it always takes me back to the 'good ol' days!' Love the snazzy new vase!
