Cathy's blue and white arrangement may be your cup of tea, and they are other options too through the links from the rest of us who join her each week. I am feeling much better now, and the sunshine today has brought some cheer. Despite much rescheduling and cancellations of outings, we shall carry on with our IAVOM.
Yesterday it started off very wet, constant slow rain was interspersed with much heavier showers.
As we had our Sunday morning breakfast in the conservatory, a large wood pigeon came and sat in the bird bath.
As each heavy burst of rain fell, it rolled over as if in a spa allowing each wing in turn to open and have a good wash.
Today I am starting to feel much better, and with the sunshine, enjoyed the garden, sitting to have our morning drink in the 'sitting circle'. As we sat there I was deciding what to put together for today's Vase on Monday.
To celebrate the day of sunshine a yellow vase with the last of Narcissus Rip Van Winkle. They are joined by some newly opening pale lemon Narcissus 'Pasdenom'. The Arum Italicum has leaves with their tracery of silver to spare this spring, and a few stems from the Mahonia aquifolium 'Apollo' with some of its bronzy leaves complete the swiftly assembled vase.
I love birds......watching them in the garden. Its not surprising that I have a few small bird artifacts. This one is a whistle and a gift from my sister decades ago.
Today I disturbed the largest of slows worm under the garden clippings at the foot of the wall. Of course the garden tidy up in that area has been cancelled! May the legless lizards scoff as many slugs as they can find.
