In a Vase on Monday: A Lonely Tulip

We are finally getting a number of flowers in the garden after an extended cold period that slowed growth. I am happy to join Cathy at Rambling in the Garden, the creator of In a Vase on Monday, with a small offering.

One of the few tulips that made it through the winter gives a flash of color among white camellia japonica and ajuga ‘Mahogany. The ivory is Japanese netsuke.

Let me invite you to join Cathy to see what she and others are sharing from their gardens this lovely day after Easter.
