I am joining in with Cathy from Rambling in the Garden with a vase of flowers and foliage hastily picked and arranged in the garden this morning. And only time for one quick photo as I was being chivvied to go out. I had already done a very quick session at the allotment consisting of picking asparagus, purple sprouting broccoli and chard for dinner tonight, sowing a short row of salad leaves, planting some Anemone coronaria ‘Sylphide’ and inspecting the sweet peas for slug damage. You see I’m already thinking ahead to future vases.
For completeness I should try and name the contents of my vase so here goes: Hydrangea petiolaris, Cornus sanguinea ‘Midwinter Fire’, Choisya ternata, Bergenia ‘Silberlicht’, Polystichum setiferum, Hellebore, Euonymus ‘Emerald Gaiety’, Heuchera, Epimedium sulphureum and Narcissus ‘Thalia’. The pottery vase I bought in Genoa, Italy, more than 20 years ago while on a business trip. It is very chipped and to begin with I used to colour in the chips with felt tip pen, but nowadays I rather like the fact that it isn’t perfect and is showing its age.
Hoping to join in again next week when I should have more time and thank you Cathy for coming up with such a brilliant meme and such fun vases to inspire and encourage us all.
