So much of what is blooming now is old fashioned, like the lilac. I love it and wouldn’t want to miss having that fragrance in the house, but wanted to update it some.
Combining it with the acid green blooms of Euphorbia wulfenii and a single ‘Queen of the Night’ tulip did it for me.
A new vase came from the local one-stop for half off.
You can’t get much older-fashioned that bleeding heart and forget-me-not.
Rescued from prissiness by a few emerging bronze leaflets of tree peony. If you haven’t yet tuned in to ‘In a Vase on Monday’, I strongly recommend you click through now to (Rambling in the Garden) to see what it’s all about.
