In a Vase on Monday – In Celebration of Spring

By Ronniejt28 @hurtledto60

It’s the middle of March and another bitterly cold day, and to make us all feel better about it the weathermen gleefully inform us that Spring is just around the corner and will be warmer tomorrow.      I do hope they are right, we could all do with a little sunshine and warmth that comes with it.

I decided it was time to bring flowers from the garden into the house for a spot of positiveness.  The temperature is 1C and it feels colder! There is a big difference to being outside on an icy day with sunshine and blue sky to it being icy cold, overcast and gray when it seems to get into the bones quickly.  After just a couple of minutes outside cutting a small posy, my hands are still taking time to warm up.

In a Vase on Monday – In Celebration of Spring

According to the meteorological calendar Spring started on the 1st of March.  It is not the same with the astronomical calendar in which we find Spring starts tomorrow Tuesday 20th March.   Why the difference?  The meteorological calender splits the year into four seasons, so accordingly Spring is 1 March until 31 May.  The astronomical calender is all to do with the Earth’s orbit around the sun and the dates change each year.  How do I know this?  Good old Dr Google!

Daffodils, anemones, crocus and a sprig of skimma in a pretty blue glass jug with a sandblasted surface go together to make my first ‘In a Vase on Monday’ of 2018.

There are some very pretty combinations which can be seen if you make a visit to Rambling in the Garden, Cathy is celebrating the anniversary of her 6th year of blogging today.
