We are in the midst of changing out our pots in our semi-annual transition. It’s time to replace the winter annuals with summer ones. It means, of course, putting into the compost pile a lot of still beautiful pansies and violas, but that is the price we pay to get a head start on the summer flowers. We are likely to pay that price again next fall when we reverse the process. In a Vase on Monday seems a fitting and just final place for the violas before their banishment to the compost pile.
The tiny vase is one of our small cobalt blue containers.
In a Vase on Monday is hosted by Cathy at Rambling in the Garden, who invites us each week to share something from our gardens in a vase. Please visit her site to see what she and others are showing this week.
