Last night we had high buffeting winds but no rain. As I listened to the storm I wondered how the flowers I had cut last night were faring outside on the garden table and wondering whether I would have to pick shards of broken glass. First light saw a falling in the wind, and I was able to bring in the flowers and jar unharmed. The garden is strew with leaves from the evergreen oak and it will probably take me all week to clear them.
In the Caithness glass vase: A few dark purple heuchera leaves together with Narcissus Thalia, Pulmonaria Sissinghurst white, and Centaurea montana alba. The Narcissi in particular tend to bring out sniffles in this household. However I love arranging flowers and if in doubt, am really glad to be able to share them with neighbours.
I'm looking forward to seeing what other gardeners will have brought together as they join Cathy for this weekly get together....Cathy has posted a new car boot sale vase and some tulips.
