Spring is definitely here in Memphis. Flowers are everywhere. We are in peak daffodil season, trees are leafing out, redbuds are blooming, azaleas are starting. It's both lovely and somewhat confusing. Over the weekend I went to my mother's daffodil lot- she is a collector of antique daffs and has planted a half-acre in the cheery blossoms- and have them all over the house. This morning, I took a picture of these summer snowflakes in my favorite tiny fluted speckled bud vase and a friend and client suggested I open up a bud vase subscription. So I have.
My bud vases are on the tiny side- most under 3" tall, all under 4" tall- sized to hold a clutch of tiny blossoms- violets, a rosebud, the minor bulbs like muscari or the snowflakes- or a single larger blossom- an exuberant zinnia, blowsy summer rose, or late-summer dahlia. Some are quite plain, some highly decorated with cobalt drawings, inlay, stripes, or a bright glaze.
I'm structuring this offering slightly differently. Starting with a 2 month subscription and adding up to a 4 month with price breaks in shipping and vase cost as you make a larger commitment. Unlike my cup and bowl seasonal subscriptions, there is not set start or end date for this listing. The shipping cost is included in the listing; you'll choose the bud vase subscription as your shipping option. Local customers, I'll refund your shipping costs if you agree to pickup.
I hope you enjoy this little offering. I'm grateful to Angie for suggesting it, and I'm going to spend the rest of my morning at the wheel making bud vases! Enjoy your week!
