Tiny Blooms - # 41 - Pale Blue Grape Hyacinths



This week on 'Tiny Blooms' I'm featuring a bunch of grape hyacinths in a gorgeous pale blue colour.

I have put them in a floral blue and white Victorian jug that picks up the blue colour in the flowers.


Here is a little "statement" that I add - to briefly explaining my thinking behind these particular posts:

"This series of blog posts - called 'Tiny Blooms' - are about small flower arrangements. Small - might be the size of the flower or the amount of stems I'm using; or it could be the size of the container. 

It can also be that the arrangement is minimal both in presentation and that it's simple, quick and easy to do. Apart from that there are no other strict rules - I'm allowing myself a lot of creative freedom!"


I love to match the colour of the flowers with a similar coloured vase or container. Here the colour of the grape hyacinths are very similar in colour to the floral pattern on the old jug. The little vintage ink glass bottle also picks up the pale blue colour and the contemporary black metal plate makes an interesting contrast.

Grape Hyacinths also called Muscari are easy to grow in the garden and will spread quite easily. They are a welcome sight in the early spring.

Stems are usually short so these flowers are perfect in jars, small vases or jugs. 


Enjoy your flower arranging and have a fabulous and floral Monday!

Thank you for visiting 'Of Spring and Summer' - I look forward to seeing later in the week - when I'll be back with more floral delights.
