Today, for the first time, I am joining Cathy at Rambling in the Garden.
Cathy posts, every Monday, a vase with flowers from her garden. And she invites other bloggers to link up. It’s quite a community and I follow several of the bloggers who regularly link up…so thought I would join in! And, of course, now that spring is here there will definitely be something fresh every Monday.
I will try to post on a regular schedule for this theme although with gardening weather here you may find me outside instead of at the computer…
This week it’s all about pink:
I cannot believe how many hyacinths I have. I’m not quite sure what happened (mind you, I am not complaining) but they multiplied tenfold from last spring. That is one of the joys of gardening: watching the unexpected happen right before your eyes.
This is our new (planted just a year ago) Okemo cherry tree. It seems happy!
I couldn’t resist one more shot of the hyacinths. And yes, the scent is heavenly. I have a vase of them here in my studio, on the other side of the room, and the scent is strong!
Thank you, Cathy, for this opportunity!
Hi Libby, glad you are joining in the Monday vase fun. Beautiful camellia and lucky you to have your hyacinths increasing. I was just glad some of mine returned. The cherry tree is magnificent.

You are most welcome Libby – and what an unashamedly pink creation you have begun with :) The pale green vase is the perfect complement for their pinkness – and your cherry tree! So beautiful against the pale sky… See you again soon
Thanks for visiting, Cathy. Yes, I forgot to add that the vase was made by my sister who, after a career as a physician is now doing wonderful pottery!
How pretty!! There’s nothing like the smell of hyacinths to announce that spring has arrived! Sounds like a fun party! We’re weeks away from anything significant in the garden. But I do have snowdrops blooming and daffodils budding, so it won’t be too long.

I hope you have plucked a hyacinth and are enjoying the scent!!!!
Wow! Your climate has your garden so far ahead of us in Boston. Tulip leaves are just starting to poke upward here. I did yesterday see on stray crocus in bloom.
So much fun to see all your pink.
