oh so blue...

My garden is awash with pops of blue...the grape hyacinths are in full bloom...so even though we are back to gray and cold...those blue blooms are a reminder that it will only get warmer...

Clipping a few buds to bring inside...I have quite a collection of silverplated salt and pepper shakers...
you often find just one at a yard sale...having lost its mate ages ago...the details can be so intricate...

 
These shakers are perfect for small stems...some of them fit through the holes of the shaker, helping to keep the stems upright...taking the top off of another shaker gives plenty of room for blooms...a miniature vase...
fits on my kitchen window sill...a beautiful reminder...of all yet to come...

    I didn't think to use salt shakers as vases.
