In a Vase on Monday: Ah! Spring!

After weeks of delightful warm weather, spring arrived cold, damp, and gray. My spirits, however, are buoyed by the flowers showing and growing in the garden. It’s Monday and time once again for In a Vase on Monday, hosted by Cathy at Rambling in the Garden.

This is our first good look at tulips, and I couldn’t resist just one more look at the camellias.

    I love the combination of pinks and purples, but tulips are always lovely whatever colour! I suspect the Camellia will be going over now, so bringing in some final blooms to enjoy is a must.
