I went looking to see if there was something different than last week's snowdrops to put into a vase this Monday but the choices in my garden are still quite limited. I did manage, however, to find a Hellebore in bloom and some Tommies to add to the snowdrops. Since Easter is approaching I decided to put my tiny posy inside this equally tiny wire basket. Once I did that I realized I should get out my other Easter items and make an actual holiday display.
The basket got moved into the living room where it joined the stack of gray art books on our pair of Chinese wine tables.
But then I moved it again to showcase a bowl of decorated eggs. Joining them (from left) are an embroidered felt egg, a souvenir egg with articulated legs (from the gift shop at the Washington Park Arboretum in Seattle), and a large paper egg from the dime store.
This bowl of eggs lives in the china cabinet behind glass doors so I see them all the time. But I do enjoy looking at them up close and rearranging them in their bowl this one time each spring.
This lovely little bunny in her bright yellow embroidered coat is keeping watch over our carrot collection. My husband loves carrots, so I started buying him a carrot for his Easter basket each year. Sharing space with them are some felt peas in the pod.
I know there are many gardeners who have a lot more options to put into their vases this week. Hop on over to Rambling in the Garden where Cathy hosts "In a Vase on Monday" to see what they've created.
