Simplicity is the theme with this week's vases. The second group of species tulips (from John Scheepers) to bloom is Tulipa 'Little Princess' (a T. hageri and T. aucheriana cross, this dainty, scented beauty is Spanish-orange with a yellow-edged, black center"). I'd been waiting and wondering what exactly "Spanish-orange" was, now I know...
And there's that "yellow-edged black center"...
The small patch next to our garage is expanding and I'm probably going to have to dig up the runners some day soon. For now I just cut the renegades and put them in a vase....
On the dining table.
The tulip vase is a vintage Chase. There was a time when I was quite obsessed with Chase metal. The only problem was, anything with the Chase mark sold way above my budget. I was thrilled to find this vase at a thrift shop. A quick internet search says it's now selling for between $43 and $95. I think I'll hang on to it.
The tulips closed up when brought inside, I actually kind of prefer them like this.
The Solomon's seal is over-sized for the table, thankfully Andrew doesn't seem to mind.
Rambling in the Garden for links to all the Monday blogger-assembled vases.
