In a Vase on Monday: In Your Own Hands


All will be back to normal next Monday when I will be able to spontaneously pick from my own garden and plonk the results in a vase, maybe the lovely new one I have bought while we have been away. In the meantime, do please create your own vases and leave the links on this post – see you all again soon!

  5. Dandelions are the first flowers we pick as children. If someone scoffs at us they may turn us away from gardening, so I celebrate your bouquet and look forward to seeing your new vase. My Monday offering is here:

    I was wondering what you would produce this week. I might have known you would come up with something, you are endlessly inventive. I’m surprised you didn’t fashion a vase out of a shell or something. I am joining you this week…-fairy-flowers/
    I hope you are having a wonderful holiday.

    When asked what is my favorite tool, I always say “my hands” but I hadn’t thought of them as a “vase”. You are full of surprises. Nothing quite so offbeat from me:

    Dandelions are great aren’t they? A proper sign spring is sprung. I’ve just posted my first Monday vase Cathy and think I’ve got the link to work from my post back to you here. No idea how to link back to my post from here though. Hopefully by next week I will have worked this out too. Thanks for all the inspiration; I’m hoping to have fun this year from my “flower patch” down at the allotment.

      Hi Sarah – welcome and thanks for joining in. I will add instructions for adding the link when I comment on yours

    There are often flowers to hand when you are on your travels Cathy and that small offering is full of springtime sunshine. Now why am I not surprised that you are returning with a new vase 🙂 Safe journey home.

    Hope you are still enjoying your holiday, despite the weather up there. Your little posy of dandelions are lovely and remind me of the jar of wildflowers you posted last time you were on holiday 🙂 Here’s the link to my vase for this week:

    That’s brilliant Cathy, my small grandson so loved the brilliant dandelions this weekend. Pure colour and pure joy. I have enjoyed arranging my vase, even a day late! Thank you so much.

    Dandelions are so bright and cheery, so long as they are not in my garden!
    Here is my vase:

  29. Well done Cathy. I thought I had posted mine via the phone. Instead it hung around in a draft, hidden from view! Take a look for me:
