In a Vase on Monday

vase‘In a Vase on Monday’ is hosted by Rambling in the Garden – oh my goodness what a lovely subject to share! My vase (jug, made in Italy and bought 25 years ago or more in Honiton, Devon) contains Aquilegia, Sweet Cicely, the last of the Pheasant Eye Narcissi, Forget-me-nots and one of my all-time favourites – Cerinthe DSC_0558 (1)Oh how I love this plant! It self-seeds, survives the winter and seems to be happy in most places in my garden. The vase is sitting on a shawl knitted by my Mum (now 86). I would so love to have taken this arrangement to her in her Care Home, but sadly she has dementia and anything you take her, only seems to add to her anxiety and distress. So, instead I took it to a friend who is having a very stressful time at the moment – and I only thought of doing this after the prompt of seeing ‘In a Vase on Monday’ – blogland spreading the love!!!
