spring blooms and vintage bottles



Do you know this flower?

....It's one of my favorites,
and it just explodes with blooms in April and May.

I first saw it
years ago
 in my neighbor Nancy's garden,
and I immediately
went out a bought one for 
my garden.


Now it's over six feet tall and full of flowers
that are great for cutting and bringing in the house.


It almost looks like a hydrangea,
but the blooms start off a pretty chartreuse color

and then transform into a creamy white shade.... 


This little amethyst bottle
has a story to tell too,
but I’ll save that for
another day!



ciao! fabiana

Hi! Your flowers are from the Snowball Viburnum--they are lovely and make a great spring bouquet. Love your bottle--it is perfect with the snowball viburnum.

What variety of Viburnum are those? Love them and have to have them in my garden!

Hi! It's a Snowball Viburnum. It starts out a little slow, but it comes back stronger and bigger every year.
