In a Vase on Monday

I love this meme

spring vase

but life gets in the way sometimes – the last few months have been ridiculously complicated with family stuff to sort out – nothing bad – just a lot!

Being creative is my way of coping, but I don’t seem to have enough free time and head space to write about it.

Today I put a posy together to take to a friend.

I splashed across my puddle of a garden to see what blooms I could find.

Hebe, cerinthe, daffs, viburnum and pulmonaria.

All popped into a little glass mustard jar. My friend placed them in the middle of the table while six of us who have known each other since our teenage years had lunch together. What a happy oasis in a crowded time, and glancing at these little flowers every so often gave me such a feeling of joy and calm.
