The Vase


I cut some calla lilies for the vase I bought, but just didn't want to cut more.  It would be really pretty with three in each pocket, but this was all I could do.  She still makes me smile.

  1. Well, Hello!!! How've you BEEN? I remember you from some time back, and I thought you were beautiful then AND now. What colour and complexion, and what a graceful pose, like a Chiparus lady. With flowers!

    So lovely.

    1. I wanted white parrot tulips, but the only white ones I had had red stripes on them. Next year, I'll have to plant some white tulips.

    1. Especially the calla lilies Pat. There aren't many of them.

  4. She is gorgeous. I would smile at her every day, with or without flowers. And I too am reluctant to pick blooms unless there are LOTS of them.

  5. ...........also Queen Ann's Lace from the hedgerows, Baby's Breath all light and airy, or just greenery such as ferns - all would be so pretty.
    Love what I can see of the painting Donna - picks up the color of the dress so well.
    Really beautiful!

    1. Mary, remember Gracie, the horse I fed for eight years. I found her a forever home and miss her ornery self. The painting is a white horse like Gracie. Yes, so many things would be pretty, but I love looking at her just as she is. Thank you Mary.

    1. Oh Bea, thank you. I made it myself ;) Each calla lily plant only grows about three flowers so I didn't cut more.

    1. That's what I think Elizabeth and I'm kind of lazy. Plus, knowing me, the more I mess with it, the more likely I will drop it. This way, it stays safe.

  10. Sometimes cutting more is really hard when it detracts from the outside displays....
