Brightening up a Dull Day

from my garden

All from my garden: Pheasant Berries, Kaffir Lily, Achillea, Phygelia and Marigold.

I was having a clear out and came across this amazing quartz crystal I bought many years ago in my hippy dippy days!

Joining Cathy for In a Vase on Monday.

  1. What a bright and beautiful collection. I seem to have calendula flowering most months, they just seem to go on and on.

  4. What a glorious display for the start of December – wonderful! The pink Kaffir lily/hesperantha is especially pretty. If one crystal brands you as hippy dippy, what does my (very) large collection make me…?! 🙂

    You have flowers in your garden this time of year! They are so beautiful I didn’t even notice the quartz until I read your post.

    • Thank you – that is my go to background – it is actually a metre square canvas that I painted with acrylic paint, propped up behind a room- dividing shelf. I am thinking of painting a few more in different colours for a bit of variety.
