Maybe I ought to have said small is beautiful, certainly in the case of these flowers. After wind, ice, and snow, and marauding slugs and snails, I am really happy to have just these few little blooms from the garden to present today. The vase is a small cut glass bowl, a little Christmas Present from my dearly beloved, in recognition to my recent fascination, and inquisitional forays round the local Charity Shops, and this one came from a local one too!
Cathy who hosts this meme, this week has a very posh vase..and has very cleverly used the snow as a backdrop which brings a wonderful light to her arrangement. Do go and have a peep there
It was quite tricky to arrange the flowers...I added some shingle to the base of the vase, and tied some wires from some of the blooms, which got covered with the pebbles so as to get the blooms to stand up!
The flowers and foliage:
Common/wild/native primrose...just two of several but the others have been nibbled.
self sown cyclamen
Tiarella which has had a bloom or two or three all winter
Snowdrop one double and one single
Leaf from Arum Italicum
