Happy Monday! It’s the third Monday of the month which means I’m joining my blogging friends for some flower therapy and Monday Morning Blooms. I know I find myself in need of some flower therapy these days and my hope is these flowers will help brighten your day too. ♥

You can find my friends links and more floral inspiration at the bottom of this post.

For this week’s edition of Monday Morning Blooms, we had an ‘anything goes’ floral theme, as flowers are a little harder to come by these days with fewer trips to the store while we’re sheltering at home.

I cut some blooms from the garden to make some Ball Jar Bouquets and brighten up a window shelf in the Potting Shed.

Bridal Wreath Spirea and Snowball Viburnum have been blooming for a couple of weeks now. . .

 I have a ‘thing’ for jars and pulled some out vintage mason jars to hold the blooms.

Pieces collected over time, a little shabby and time worn . . .

I cut the last of the Lenten Roses that bloomed in February, most of the blooms gone to seed and with seed pods.

Blooms past their prime and a little shabby but perfectly imperfect to pair with transferware pieces with crazing and chips. . .

Blue and white vintage-inspired floral plates were a Pottery Barn find several years ago. . .

    Oh Mary…I have always admired your gorgeous Snowball Viburnum so much that one of the very first things that I bought for the new yard was just that and I bet you could have heard me squeal when the bush that was just a bouquet of bare branches started to bloom! It is by the driveway so you can see it when you drive in and within eye shot to when looking out the front door…everything you do in the Potting Shed is a delight. I love the way you curated those beautiful dishes and never forgetting the beautiful orphans. I am so happy that you have the joy of working in your yard and Potting Shed in these times and just enjoying your beautiful surroundings…enjoy the “bird chirping weather” (I love to hear the birds while drinking my coffee) and yes, this “storm” shall pass. Have a great day Mary…always a treat to join you on MMB’s! Happy Gardening.

    Thank you for the flower therapy this morning Mary! I gasped when I saw your snowball bush, how spectacular!! I love the pretty white spring flowers from your garden in your jars and collection of blue and white transferware. Love when you gals share your Monday Morning Blooms with us!

    Mary, a visit inside your potting shed is a great way to start the morning. Your snowball viburnum, bridal wreath spirea, and Lenten roses dress up the beautiful leaded window with all the best of spring. My snowball viburnum and bridal wreath spirea are spent, I am always sad to see the beautiful blooms fall to the ground. The dishes are the perfect accompaniment to the Mason jar arrangements. Gardening has been the best therapy during sheltering at home, I think I would have been stir crazy by now if it had not been for weeding, sowing, and planting. It is always a pleasure to join you for Monday Morning Blooms, enjoy your day and stay safe my friend♥️

    Good morning 🌞 I would love to come over for tea and a stroll through your garden.
    I’ve just moved to Florida, clear across the country from California. I’ve grown natives in my northern Cali suburban yard. Western Red Bud, Manzanita, California Poppies (by the millions) Redwoods and ceanothus.
    I need your help in planning a garden here in Central Florida! There are azaleas. Massive old Live Oaks covered in Resurrection Fern. Such a fascinating plant. I’ve visions of hydrangeas and gardenia. You’ve reminded me of bridal wreath…my mother grew it. And now I want one or two. And a big snowball bush to make lovely calming white and green arrangements!
    AND, there is a shed! Kinda creepy now with massive wasps cities and a wood spider who terrified my daughter and me. Your gorgeous shed has me planning ahead to a safe and fun place to Potter about!
    Cheers from the one tea mug I’ve wrestled out of a box! Ta for now…..

    Mary, that is just stunning. The all white flowers in all the beautiful variations of blue vases is both elegant and happy! My snowball viburnum outdid itself until storms came through Clemson. My two bridal wreaths (planted nearby) used to bloom prolifically but now only has a few blooms. I’m thinking it has gotten too shady. I sure enjoyed seeing yours!

    My favorite weather is bird chirping weather too! What a lovely post, thank you Mary…so many pretties, a feast for the eyes!

  10. April 20, 2020 at 8:36 am

    Wonderful eye candy and flower therapy Mary! I have pinned some photos that I want to capture with my paint brush 🎨 There is never a shortage of blooms in your garden, and the combo of white blooms with blue Ball jars is magical.
    Your blue and white plates complimenting the blooms are so pretty, and the floral gardening gloves make the whole scene like we just missed seeing you clipping and arranging…

    Your potting shed makes my heart so happy. Thank you for sharing it. I live too far north to have such beautiful flowers but I know they will be here if I can just be patient enough to let summer get here.

    As always, thank you for the beauty! Oh how I love your potting shed!

  13. April 20, 2020 at 9:12 am

    I just love your theme of white flowers, Mary, from the blissing in your garden. The stems look perfectly happy in your canning jars and in your beautiful potting shed. The blooming plates on the shutters and your vintage pieces add such a lovely, serene touch. The quote on bird chirping weather made me smile. Thank you for the beauty this morning. 😊

    BE STILL MY HEART!!! A BLOOM in those garden shears !! Oh YES! I couldn’t even see the rest …Going right this minute to open the shears on my potting bench …and add a bloom . Even before my coffee. TOTAL DELIGHT!!

  15. April 20, 2020 at 9:46 am

    Oh how I love all your blue transferware, blue is my favorite color and your snowball bush, makes me want to plant one this spring. I was feeling a little down this morning, but now after seeing all this , it makes me happy

  16. April 20, 2020 at 9:51 am

    Snowball envy! I’m going to rush over and look at my dozen plants 6″ high after 2 years and howl at the sun! I LOVE white flowers, they stand out the most from a distance, calming , reassuring all is well in the world with their serene beauty… One year mine will learn to grow, until then I can mutter about, kick the dirt and think of your pretty little blue and white vignette! Ok, I shouldn’t be complaining, this year is the most COLOR I have seen since we moved, and that makes my heart soar daily!

    A beautiful vignette Mary! The blue and white theme is so soothing and peaceful. Your blooms are so healthy and full. We’ve been blessed with wonderful Spring weather and the birds are indeed chirping! We sit on the porch and listen to them in the mornings and watch the deer in the early evening graze as well. Just finished transplanting bulbs from my Mom’s house. Also, was able to cut some various hedge rose blooms which have a glorious sweet smell before the rain yesterday. I certainly enjoyed the “anything goes” theme. Thank you for always brightening our day! Stay safe and well! Clara ♥️

    Thanks for the morning pick-me-up! I love the beautiful blue and white china with the white viburnum. I’ve had white hydrangeas for years but will have to hit the garden center, once we’re able, to purchase a viburnum. Your posts are always so inspiring and spirit lifting!

    I’m just remembering that the “fence” that separated our yard from the neighbors in my childhood home was a row of bridal wreath spirea. Thanks for sparking the memory!

  21. April 20, 2020 at 10:30 am

    Oh oh oh! How I love when you open up your potting shed to us! The blues and whites are so pretty together! I’m off to clean my potting shed. So much inspiration from you. My decor is different… but because of you … I get inspired! Happy Week to you!

    Mary, your post warmed my heart this morning. It’s cloudy in NJ today, but your photos brightened my morning. Your shed is so elegant with all those white blooms! I just love your collection of dishes, platters and pitchers. Blessings to you and all your readers.

    A friend sent me your potting shed photos this morning! What a joy to see all the photos from your potting shed. We have moved to an apartment and I miss the flowering bushes and trees we had. Thank you for sharing!

    So beautiful, Mary! I hope you fair well from the storms. We had a tornado warning around 11:30 last night that sent us to our safe place. Thankfully it was an extremely fast-moving storm and it passed us quickly. Thankful for radar so we knew where it was.
    I am enjoying your post today as I love snowballs, bridal wreath, and hellebores. I can’t wait for mine to be fruitful enough to cut and enjoy. My bridal wreath is all gone now. I was trimming and pruning the bridal wreath as you suggested and I discovered a cardinal nest with baby birds so I stopped trimming. Two days later the birds were gone! 😥I was very sad! Not sure what happened. We had the storm last Sunday and it was Monday when I checked.
    We have sunshine today after the awful storm last night. Thanks for a refreshing and delightful post.

  25. April 20, 2020 at 12:49 pm

    SO beautiful Mary! I’d get a chair and just cozy up there and look at your lovely flowers and transfer ware. ❤️ Love your gardening gloves too – how perfect! :) Happy Monday and thanks for the beauty!

    Very pretty Mary! It’s nice to know that no matter what’s going on in the world, the flowers will still bloom-enjoy:@)

    I love the white and blue theme. beautiful

    Always loved your potting shed but now am ready to move in!!
    The Snowball V. reminds me of my “garden obsessed grandmothers.
    Hers was in the front yard, huge and show-ie just like your beauty.
    People walking, cars even stopped to compliment her on it.
    After her stroke her home was sold. Sadly, new the owners wanted
    Low Maintenance grounds…they got it! Removed everything, Roses,
    Camellia’s, Fuchsias, Gardenia etc. the Snowball bush was first to go.
    I was young, but would guess they didn’t make a lot of friends right off!
    Thanks for the rekindled memory of Nanny’s garden.🌸

  32. April 20, 2020 at 11:17 pm

    Beautiful, Mary!!! It is always a delight to see your potting shed. LOVED the bloom in the shears!!!! I love bird chirping weather as well and just wish it would warm up some so I could get OUT of this house. Our weather lady just said strong storms tomorrow and temps going DOWN the next few days:( I am bummed. Have a beautiful week.

  33. April 21, 2020 at 12:28 am

    Let me make a list of everything I love about this post. The blue and white. That amazing viburnum! Your potting shed. Using mix and match vessels with missing lids for your flowers. The gardening gloves. I would just disappear for hours out there! Hanging plates on the shutters. The shelf over the window…all just 💙!

    Mary, I’m a little late coming around but am delighted to see your beautiful white blooms displayed so prettily with the ball jars and blue transferware. I have something blooming near our garden that has white blooms with a heavenly scent that I can’t identify. It was something that we transplanted from another place in the yard and it has transformed into a tree. Leo brought some blooms from it inside yesterday.

    So pretty Mary, always love seeing the potting shed. She looks like she is ready to have a wedding in there with all the lovely white and blue. LOVE the picture of the white bush by the water, pinned it. ♥️

    Thanks Mary for brightening my dark and rainy morning here in Greensboro. My Viburnums have been beautiful this year. I have several varieties. Wondered if you have any tips on using them as cut flowers. Do you crush the stems like hydrangeas? I realized that the majority of my flowering shrubs have white flowers. Thinking of making a sign saying White Flower Acres to hang out in the garden. Good project to occupy some time while isolating! Stay well Kathy

  38. April 23, 2020 at 1:54 pm

    Bird chirping weather! I like that, Mary! I savor these spring mornings sitting out on the terrace, just the sound of the birds and the fountains in our back yard. Springtime at it’s best! Did you see the cute video I captuured with friends at the birdbath. Shared on IG. sjpa48
