In a Vase on Monday: Grey day Flowers

I’m not usually drawn to pastel-coloured flowers and I’m not a huge fan of yellow ones but I discovered these yellow tulips in the bluebell patch at the bottom of the garden, and big clumps of primroses down there are still flowering their socks off. The blue/violet and yellow seemed a little lacking on their own, so I added a couple of sprigs of a pink scented pelargonium that have been flowering for a couple of weeks now in another vase.

There’s a heavy blanket of cloud sitting over East Kent today (it feels like it could start bucketing down at any moment) and low light levels, so even in my usually bright kitchen photographing the vase was tricky and I hope I’ve captured the delicate colours.

As usual, I’m joining in with Cathy at Rambling in the Garden (who has sweet peas today!) where you’ll find links to loads of lovely vases from around the world.

Have a good week.
