In a vase on Monday

My offering this week is made up of shrub prunings and a spray of flowers from a bouquet I received. I initially thought that none of the blooms in my garden would be suitable as cut flowers (it feels wrong to cut bluebells, aquilegia etc) until I saw what others had put on their blogs.  Thanks for the inspiration and note to self:  must try harder.


  1. The green on green on green is really appealing.

  2. I agree with Chris, the greens work together well. Makes a calming, yet striking arrangement with that interesting foliage. Many gardeners have special cutting gardens set aside but I just consider my whole garden fair game for vase material.


Ten Years a Blogger

Happy tenth anniversary to Thirdageblogger! I began this blog as personal journal after I retired and was considering my options....
