Bluedaisyz weekly Photo Challenge: SILVER

And joining in with Cathy’s In a Vase on Monday


I am writing this in haste as I am away from home at the moment (I put the photos together before I left).


These beautiful earrings were made for me by my sister.

More about the plants and the ‘props’:

I looked in my garden for silver coloured leaves – not many – i must put that right. The ones I found were lavender, perennial white wallflower, a strange furry leaved mint that is in flower at the moment with pale lilac coloured flowers, and the tall spikes are the new growth of a cotoneaster.
