My little old salt glazed ink bottle is just the right size, and in with Crocus chrysanthus var fuscotinctus, a little branch of Hebe Topiara. This makes a lovely small compact silver green ever green shrub. I had taken some cuttings from Liz's garden in Kenilworth before moving, and they are sturdy enough now to have a little bit chopped off.
I think it was last year, Alison C posted a vase of snowdrops poised on a mirror. I've just received my mirror and remembered to take it outside for its first 'showing'...inside it is a wonderful way of seeing the underside of nodding blooms, particularly snowdrops. Here when the blooms are open, the marron stripes are still visible. Cathy asked if I bought the mirror specially. Yes I did after the yearning for one was going round my head for over a year! A real bargain, nicely finished and with little pads underneath .
