In a log on Monday


In my last IaVoM post I used some logs as candlesticks, Cathy suggested that they could also be used as vases – Great idea!

Tiny daffs, vinca, muscari, box and ivy all in a small plastic bottle tucked into the hole in the log.


And the Amalanchier picked a couple of a weeks ago is beginning to flower, in the vase, but not outside yet.

This buddha sits in a quiet corner with all sorts of little fairies etc that the children have nestled round him and like to play with – I often overhear the fairies and animals having imaginary conversations with the buddha.

(My camera seems to be playing up so the picture is a bit blurred – first the laptop, now the camera ….. eeurgh! )

Pop over to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden to see her delightful vase and all the other fascinating Vases from so many different countries.

    • I’m not sure I would have thought of it either – it was Cathy’s brilliant suggestion – I’m looking out for more logs to suit now. Thanks for popping Donna, nice to see you!
