In a New Vase...just the right size to show off a few snowdrops.
I had thought I had lost my smallest of ceramic vases so bought this at a stall at the Shepton Mallet Snow Drop Festival on Friday. Alison C: a Fair Maid from IAVOM joined me for a lovely afternoon at the festival.
Pride of place in the front is a flower from a new snowdrop bought at the show: Viridapice nivalis green tip This is quite a common snowdrop I understand...but I love it as it is easily identified by the green on the outer petals.
Along side are snowdrops which survived the move from the midlands, and a couple of periwinkle flowers from a clump of Vinca Minor. Its not quite the right blue to match the vase..but I have little else in flower.
Whilst unpacking the last of my boxes of vases on Sunday I found the smallest vase...too small for these but fine for a trio of mud spattered primroses.
With it a spring of rosemary and a little stem of sedum a gift plant from Alison last year, which is starting to sprout very nicely. I think it may be Sedum Autumn Charm 'Lajos'. Here it is sitting on a very old doily which would have graced tea time tables in the days before paper or plastic ones.
Cathy has her arrangement on a tea cloth...do go and see what is on offer to wet your appetite there.
