Monday in Eleven Vases

My favorite thing about Mondays is the meme, Monday in a Vase,  at the blog Rambling in the Garden.

Every week gets started with vases of beautiful flowers from all over the globe.

I have only contributed to this blog meme once, with a tiny vase pin.

Yes, I am a post parasite.   Forgive me, Cathy.

To make up for it, I am sharing eleven vases of my flowers, done yesterday,

for my in-laws’  60th Anniversary celebration.

I never arrange flowers, so this was a stretch for me.

Most of the vintage vases were found at “treasure shops” in the area.

The vases sat on guest tables in clouds of pink or peach tulle.

My sister-in-law, Dana, made everything perfect.  If she goes pro, you better get on her waiting list.

  1. Beautiful party all around. The flowers made it so lovely! I’m glad you got photos of each special arrangement to save long after the flowers have faded.

  2. The foxglove is my absolute favorite here! I’ve got them growing in my garden. Not right now, of course. The first buds will open a little before midsummer and they continue blooming all July. They also grow wild in many places. There’s a beautiful hill by a small lake not so far from here where they grow abundantly. They’re particularly beautiful, I think, in the twilight of dusk and dawn.
