In a Vase on Monday - Colours of the Year

Acum trei zile, juriul Pantone a anunțat culoarea anului 2016,  de fapt, pentru prima oară, culorile, pentru că au fost două: roz cuarț și bleu serenitate.  O combinație care mi-a plăcut dintotdeauna și pe care, iată, că am găsit-o și în grădină, la acest început de decembrie,  la viole și calluna. Le-am pus într-un pahar simplu, alături de o piatră în același ton, adusă din Africa de Sud. Suntem în trend!/ Three days ago, the jury of Pantone, the fashion industrys arbiter of colour, announced  the colour of the year 2016, in fact the colours of the year, as this time there have been  two: quartz pink and serenity blue. A combination that I have always liked and, surprisingly, found it in my garden, too, at the beginning of December - Violas and Calluna. I put them in a glass next to a stone brought from South Africa and here we are, in vogue!




 



And the Pantone colours of the year 2016:

  3. So pretty Anna. It really is amazing what is flowering in December. Rose Quartz is such a pretty gemstone too.

    1. It is not quartz in fact, but it has the same colour. Thanks for visiting my blog, Cathy!

  6. That's wonderful that you could match the Serenity blue and Rose Quartz pink colors in your vase, Anca. The heather and pansies look so pretty together, and don't seem very wintery. though here I also have a winter blooming heather and could get pansies though I will probably wait until spring. I always have so much trouble deciding on which pansies to buy, I like them all.

    1. You,are so right, Hannah, I spend hours choosing what pansies to buy, thinking what colours would go where in what corner of the garden! Thanks for your comment!
