    • Thank you Noelle – they are so resilient aren’t they. I wondered how they would be after the snow melted and they are all still so perky and enjoying the sunshine we had yesterday.

    Wow that seems like quite a bit of snow. It is amazing how resilent the flowers are though. My mini daffodils all survived the snow last week.

  9. Yikes! Now that’s a snowstorm! I’m impressed by each and every one of those flowers shown standing up against the snow. And your tribute to Cathy’s anniversary is inspired.

  10. I am very surprised your flowers survive such weather – you are a hardy lot in the UK ๐Ÿ™‚ Your arrangement is beautiful – I do love a nice candle! Happy sixth to Cathy!

    • I was surprised as well – especially the anemones which have been flowering for about a month already and they usually flower at the beginning of April.
      Candles definitely make a celebration don’t they. ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. A very pretty arrangement. Your crocuses look like a sturdy lot! We are having quite a lot of snow this year aren’t we!

    • Thank you Jane. I agree about the crocuses, they look like galliant little soldiiers standing straight and strong in the face of whatever this weather has to throw at them. I’m enjoying the bits of snow we are having – they are mainly at weekends and don’t last long – perfect!

  17. So sorry that you have snow. Your flowers look quite sweet with their snow caps. Your hellebore and hebe arrangement is gorgeous! Love the idea of the candle in the middle. While it may be cold outside, your arrangement looks quite warm and inviting.

    These spring snows are always such a shock but hopefully it will be the last cold shock of the year. You are brave getting out in it to fill a vase. Happy IAVOM.

    • I like a challenge! I did wonder if the flowers would still look OK after being bowed by the snow, but they seemed to have survived quite well. I have known snow here as late as 5th May – that was in the late 1990s. It is fun so long as it does not last too long.
