Joining Cathy and gardeners in the UK, America, Australia, Italy and elsewhere and popping a few blooms from our gardens into a Vase on Monday. (link later)
Amelanchier, pulmonaria and cerinthe in glass vases. The dinky one on the right is a discarded Victorian ink pot I found in my garden about 45 years ago when I lived in an old thatched cottage at White Horse Farm.
The leaves of the amelanchier are a rusty brown so, of course, they reminded me of the rusty wire my star of son-in-law gave me.
Those of us with gardens are the lucky ones in these lockdown days. I am so grateful and thoroughly enjoying immersing myself in mine.
Looking up through the amelanchier at a blue sky tells me that Spring has sprung
I have transplanted some strawberries into one of my waist-high beds
and sown some salad leaves in the other one
The tinsel is to keep the pesky sparrows away – will it work I wonder?
A beautiful pink anemone has appeared in the garden, I can’t remember where I got it from, but I just love it
Can you see the little white crab spider
A spider that does not make a web – fascinating.
I hope you are able to enjoy a garden or park, or at least have a walk that takes you past other gardens.
Also joining Cee’s Flower of the Day.
Those little buds from my 11.11 vase have just decided to open.
Sometimes we push ourselves forward in the wrong season, we do not shine so brightly, we are much smaller than we could be, but still we insist on flowering.
Will they flower again in Spring, I wonder, or will they have exhausted themselves.
Joining Cathy for In a Vase on Monday
I could only light the candle once inside, the wind is fierce today.
Happy Sixth Blogging Anniversary Cathy!!
This is where the hellebores came from this morning
and the hebe
Other flowers had snowy hats on too
The hyacinth above is my entry into Cee’s Flower of the Day.
Not exactly Easter Island weather
and this dear little pot seems to have a white fluffy stole on to keep warm
Pop over to Cathy’s and see what others have found to pop in a vase this Monday.

Loving the white Narcissi the most, their scent ….. the scent of spring, caught here in the early morning light.
But there are other stars in the garden too..
just look at that powder puff centre
And seedlings in waiting. Pippin, the caravan in the garden, is making a very good potting shed at the moment
