In a vase on Monday: tulips


This morning, I have arranged purple and red tulips in assorted small glass vases along the radiator cover in the dining room.

I found the large shells in the woods behind the house soon after we moved in. I guess a former resident had tossed them out there.


To see what other garden bloggers have put in vases today, please visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden.

  1. A fascinating ‘vase’! And you’ve caught your tulips at that stage I love them most, when the stems begin to twist – they look as other-worldly as the shells do.

  2. I love the way you have arranged these on the radiator cover – what a great display they make, and what great find those shells were!

  3. This is just a perfect display to my eye. You get to see the tulips growing and twisting, and limiting flower color makes it possible to see that long group as one. I love those European radiator covers. Nothing as nice in the U.S. that I’ve ever seen. The weight of the shells nicely anchors the display to the radiator.
