A Basketful of Summer

I have an old basket that my cat Sissi uses for sleeping & bird watching.
I borrowed the basket from her and filled it with garden flowers.
Inside I put two glass jars with bouquets each.
I did not count how many different flowers there were, but definitely many!

I must have flowers, always, and always.
- Claude Monet

I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers.
- Claude Monet

Here is the cat lady - behind bars, otherwise she would jump outside from the open window and attack the birds.
The basket suits well for a nap too!

I have not yet visited Giverny, but have read a book about it.
It definitely is worth looking at Google Images. Monet was also very fond of irises.

With this flower basket I wish you a flower filled weekend!

  14. Beautiful flowers, Riitta. Your garden is full of texture and colour, like Monet's. You would enjoy Giverny very much. We visited last summer, and just this morning, I put up a little memory post about our time there. Flowers add joy to everyday life.

    Have a wonderful weekend :)

  18. Mir geht es wie Monet: Ich muss immer Blumen haben!-
    Giverny ist ein Traum, selbst bei Regenwetter!
    Bon week-end!

  19. Oh, Monet inspiration; you have impressionism in your own garden!! :) Lovely arrangements, so gorgeous, especially that I see some of my favourite blossoms, peony blooms... Sissi must be a very content lady having such amazing arrangements made by you... A delight for eyes! Very talented and creative, as always, Riitta!
    A great Saturday and weekend, as well! Alexa

    Olen juuri istuttanut tähtiputkia penkkiin, kun ne katosivat toissa talvena. Sissi on niin ihana!<3
