I am quite amazed that in sheltered gardens, as in Cathy's there are sufficient little blooms to make up a vase. Make yourself a cuppa, settle down and go see how Cathy has presented her colourful little arrangement this week. Then continue and see what others have come up with. Then if you would like to, why not join in...read Cathy's blog for the rules.
Here there is very little in the garden, but I have 'acquired' this nice little pebble like Vase. In one of our many Charity Shops in town I found this little vase just after Christmas, and for a few coins the golden ones, this vase still with the original label 'Chessel Pottery' and an impress in the pottery came home to join my growing collection.
Very little is coming up in the garden yet...we have a very cold situation here: we can have a couple of inches of snow over the garden and road, and just a few hundred yards away it is clear. It has become much colder, so I shall have to be patient. There are several spring bulbs trying to force themselves through the damp and very soil, but I shall have to be patient.
Again on another walk, a few twigs and sprig of ivy with its fruit caught my eye...et voila...
I look forward to having some knowledgeable description of the type of pottery and glazes from other members of Cathy's meme In a Vase on Monday, for I know that there are potters amongst them. So another side ways view of the vase.
I am very happy to report that the blossom on my twigs from last week is starting to open. I went back to look at the tree with the broken branch on the ground, but it had been cleared up, so I shall just have to cherish what I already have.
