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. She hosts this Monday meme.

  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.
