In a Vase on Monday – Lily Sweet Surrender

We took some flowers to C’s father in hospital this weekend, including Sweet Surrender, which is the first of my new lilies to flower. It has burst from the ground with strong long stalks covered with simple flowers.

With everything else going on I forgot about the theme this week. A smaller vase was a bit of a hotchpotch of shorter flowers, including roses Guitar, and  Crepuscule, a last pink daffodil, perhaps ‘My Word’, and freesias and calendula.

  1. Your small vase is charming; it still looks like spring in your garden which I like as it means it must still be autumn here and not winter yet. Here in Italy you can’t take flowers to hospitals any more, which I think is very sad.

  2. Hope C’s father is OK. What a shame to read that Italian hospitals no longer allow flowers 😦 Lilies always look so perfect and I can almost smell the fragrance from your other vase – the freesias and roses in particular are gorgeous

    1. Thanks for your wishes. He has made it through his operation so this is good news. Lilies do look perfect. I should have cut the pollen off because it marks bed curtains and everything else it touches. They don’t look as nice without them though.

  3. Those lilies are stunning and I’m sure they were appreciated. I love the bright colors of the smaller vase too. Between the freesias, roses and lilies I expect your garden is full of fragrance this time of year!

    1. Thank you, it is very fragrant. These lillies don’t seem to have a strong scent, but the wallflowers, the citrus, and the cordylines are really making clouds of scent right now.

  4. What a lovely gift to receive when you are feeling poorly! Your roses and freesias go so well together, and I like the fact that spring and early summer seem to be meeting up in your vase. 😉
