This week I am showing a Mini Spring posy with items from my conservatory border. Spring ephemerals deserve a look in rather than be held back, as I am never sure what the weather or other natural forces can do to these delicate flowers. Saying that the cyclamen have survived very well, some plants flowering since before Christmas.
In addition to two different cyclamen coum, leaves of Geranium Russell Pritchard, Pulmonaria Sissinghurst White, and a Spring of Pittosporum Tom Thumb which echoes the purple tips on Corydalis Integra's pale pink flowers. This is a spring beauty which is new to the garden this year. If I am to mention props then the Doves wall hanging mosaic of two doves, was made by Helen Clues, who runs the Farthing Gallery in Kenilworth. Mr S and I chose this as 'the present to our new home'.
This weekly arrangement is dedicated to my friend Kay who originally gave me the Pulmonaria and which is a delight in the garden throughout the year. I am joining in with Cathy at 'Rambling in the Garden': not only flowers, but a little story and props awaits us all. We love to Flag up her arrangements, and this week I shall also post a link to our Gardening Club Facebook page. In addition you will find links there to many others who like me love to join in this weekly celebration of flowers from our gardens.
