In a Vase on Monday - Always Surprising, My Garden

Buchetul de azi de la mijlocul lui decembrie nu e cu evergreenuri și ornamente de Crăciun, cum probabil ar fi trebuit, ci cu micsandre. Erau prea frumoase să nu le pun într-o vază de luni. Cine ar fi crezut că aceste flori sunt atât de rezistente? E adevărat că nu e nici atât de frig pe cât ar fi trebuit, dar totuși am avut brumă și nopți reci. Ele tot înflorite. Grădina mea, mereu surprinzătoare./ This mid-December bouquet is not with evergreens and Christmas decorations as it probably should have been. It is with Matthiola Incanas (I like how these words sounds!). They were too beautiful not to deserve a Monday Vase. Who would have thought that these flowers are so strong? It is true the weather is too mild for this time of the year, but there have been very cold nights and even frost and they are still in bloom. Always surprising, my garden.

  3. I think we shall remember this year...a year of unusual flowering in our gardens. Love your arrangement and the little bit of fabric lights up the colours of your blooms even more.

  5. Anca, I always love the way you stage your vases, giving them the most natural settings. These flowers are charming and the blue fabric adds a perfect detail. Susie

    1. One of the advantages of having a terrace, it is much easier to get a nice setting and a good light at the same time. Thanks for the comment, Susie!

  6. Oh what pretty colours these are, Anca - and Susie says they are always enhanced by your natural backgrounds (who says you need props?!). Thanks for sharing

    1. I would love to use props, but to be honest I do not have time for this, yet.I thank you Cathy for this great idea that have changed our relationships with our gardens!

  7. Beautiful shades Anca and I imagine that there's delicious scent too. I like the knitted collar wrapped round the top of your vase.

  8. Lucky you to still have flowers from your garden. Mine are such a distant memory. You can always do holiday greens in another post, celebrate these lovelies today! :-)

  9. Oh, how lovely Anca. I wonder if they have any scent left in the cold weather. Is it really December where you are?!
