Hello Dear Readers!
It’s been a while (again). Things are moving and shaking around here with many
decisions to make with regard to the new house. Valentine’s Day was momentous in many ways.
Other than spending it with my Loves, we finally broke ground! Did you hear the earth move?
Now on the subject of special things happening, today is very special as it is
the 3rd Monday of the month which means it is Monday Morning Blooms day,
when I and my most wonderful fellow bloomers Lidy, Mary and Pam
will be sharing some great floral inspiration.
Today’s common theme is Citrus and Flowers.
So sit back and enjoy some great floral inspiration!!
CITRUS AND FLOWERS – MONDAY MORNING BLOOMS
The beautiful images and links (below each image) of Lidy’s, Mary’s, and Pam’s
are shown at the bottom of the post. Their creativity is always beyond amazing!
One day when scrolling through my Instagram, I came across this incredible image by
Sweet Pea Knoxville, showing an incredible arrangement at The Cloister at Sea Island.
It inspired me for today’s Monday Morning Blooms of Citrus and Flowers.
I often wished I had a foyer large enough for a large round table so that I could
keep beautiful fresh floral arrangements on to greet family and friends.
I gathered my blue and white vases and containers and
began to attempt to create my version of the inspiration image with what I had on hand.
I realized as I arranged the blue and white pieces on the table,
with the exception of the egg cups, which were a Bombay purchase many years ago,
that all of the other pieces came from my fav consignment store, Always Home (Durham, N.C.)
A trip to Trader Joe’s yielded:
I chose lemons as my “citrus” as I love the color combination of blue and yellow.
I seem to be presenting my Monday Morning Blooms from my dining room lately.
However, can you blame me for wanting to have that great backdrop?
I was so happy that my Trader Joe’s finally got in a stock of Forsythia branches,
As I had been swooning over my friend Kim (Savvy Southern)
Forsythia branches that she had on her mantel..
Love how the Freesia drapes from the vase.
Lemons on wood skewers are placed among the spray roses.
Lemons and alstroemeria are placed in this sweet footed bowl.
A trio of calla lilies are added to the “floral vignette”
I wish I could have found a small lemon tree,
so the next best thing was to gently place a few lemons between the forsythia branches.
I couldn’t come close to that gorgeous inspiration image;
however, the key word is “inspiration” . . . a way for us to create our own version
of something that inspired us.
I took an inspiration image and made it my own! …. and you can do it too!
Speaking of inspiration . . . the wonderfully talented ladies of Monday Morning Blooms
will knock your garden gloves off with their gorgeous floral inspiration today!
The links to their posts are highlighted below their images.

I wish you all a most beautiful day hopefully filled with sunshine and flowers!
