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.
