Joining in with Cathy’s In a Vase on Monday
A rooted cutting from a ‘Money Plant’ or Crassula Portulacea (I think?), just right to make into a piece of Kokodama as a gift for a fellow blogger with a penchant for succulents.
I had the most brilliant day yesterday – all due to commenting on Noelle’s Snowdrop post a couple of weeks ago. Following an exchange of comments and Noelle’s generous invitation, Noelle, Alison and I all met up at the Bishop’s Palace in Wells for the Snowdrop Celebration.
The day was cold but the sunshine bright
Look at that sky!
So much beauty to see
and Cathy – so many wonderful witchhazels
We had the best time – more photos to share in a future post
So, thank you from the tip of my toes to the top of my head to Cathy for her fabulous Monday meme which brought us together, Noelle for the suggestion and generous hospitality and Alison for joining us to make it such a wonderful day.Noelle ~ Alison ~ Me

You might already know how much I love all things Japanese. I came across the Art of Kokodama on @tranquil_plants on Instagram and just had to have a go.
The snowdrop moss ball dangles in the window next to the pelargoniums that have flowered for over a year now – ‘Winter says hello to Summer’
back lit by a sunny Golden Euonymus outside in the garden.
Joining Cathy with her ‘In a Vase on Monday’ meme. It is always delightfully uplifting to see what she and other gardeners pop into a vase – or other container – each week.
I’m new to Instagram, not sure how to use it yet, but if you would like to see what I put on there here is a link.
