In a Vase on Monday: One Becomes Two

Now that spring is underway; the garden is filling nicely with greens and flowers. So it’s nice to join the Cathy’s for some Monday cheer.

After gathering greens from one azalea and three calla lilies, I cut a handful of the fading yellow Freesia. Try as I might, though, I couldn’t get the flowers to work in one arrangement. I arranged two smaller vases, one with Freesia and azalea greens,

and the other with calla lilies (Zantedeschia) and Asparagus setaceus plumosus.

Over the weekend, I arranged another vase for a friend’s birthday. I wish all of my friends celebrated birthdays this time of year. It’s so cheering giving flowers from one’s garden.

Thank you, Cathy, at and Cathy at Words and Herbs.

Fun facts:

A calla lily isn’t a true lily and an Asparagus “fern” isn’t a fern.

  1. Gorgeous!! I love flowers for my birthday but from a friend’s garden would truly be magic. Too bad we live on opposite coasts. I’ll just have to enjoy my neighbors flowers and imagine what they might become.

    You are so talented.


  2. I especially like the no-fuss simplicity of the ‘calla and fern’ vase, but love the brightness of your freesias too, which must smell glorious! It is clear from the posies I give to friends that they are more delighted with them than shop-bought ones


    • Thank you, Cathy. The scent is intoxicating and they are surprisingly long-lasting in a vase. I think we all appreciate a gift from someone’s garden, be it fruit or flowers. Perhaps its the idea that we’ve grown and nurtured them, then cut some stems just for them.
