Another week and another vase, a little routine is soothing, and I shall be anchoring this post to Cathy's. Others will also be sheltering there, so for a little calming distraction, do go there to look at other vases of garden flowers. Just by coincidence Cathy has a 'nautical' inspired post, so whether you are anchoring against being blow way by the wind, or seeking refuge in a safe port, may you find moments of calm this week.
If Grace can withstand the rains and winds then she deserves to make this week's vase. I have posted vases with Grace as late as December, but there are not many more buds forming at present, maybe because we have been lacking in Sunshine. Here against the yellow lampshade the blushes on the outer petals shows up nicely.
The Arum Italicum is showing nicely in the shady border, and the sedum is on its last legs. Over the stormy period I have watched as gusts tug at and cast the many petals like confetti, but now is the time to bring a few of the last buds indoors.
