In a Vase on Monday - Buds in March

Mi se pare că orice s-ar întâmpla, magnolia rămâne cea mai elegantă plantă din grădina mea de primăvară, iar culoarea, textura și forma bobocilor e unică. I-am combinat cu frunze de narcise, de la cele oarbe, care nu au înflorit. și le-am pus într-un vas simplu, de sticlă verzuie, pentru a pune în valoare bobocii. Pentru a se așeza bine în vas, am tăiat toate crenguțele la același nivel și am prins mănuncjiul cu niște sfoară. Am acum inspirație pe birou, pentru toată săptămâna./ I think that no matter what, Magnolia remains the most elegant plant in my spring garden and the colour, the texture and the shape of its buds in March is unique.I have combined them with some Narcissus leaves and used a simple glass jar to allow them to show off. I have cut the bouquet at the bottom and  tied it with some string. And here it is, inspiration on my desk for the whole week.

  1. Anna this is beautiful. My neighbor has a Magnolia in bloom right now and I was wondering how well it would work in a vase. Exquisite.

  2. Anca I have to agree...these are stunning. I don't have magnolia, and I don't think I have seen such a purple magnolia bud...most I see are more pink.

    1. As you have noticed, the colour of my magnolia is special, that dark pink is quite rare. Thanks for visiting, Donna!

    1. I feel a little bit guilty for having cut a few branches, but I have a very big one and part of it is getting over the fence in the street so cutting is necessary in this case.Thank, Kris!

  7. Your magnolias are truly beautiful and the leaves are the perfect pairing. I would have hesitated to cut such beautiful blooms but they do look wonderful and give so much pleasure that I think it was worth it!
