In a Vase on Monday
It’s late as I post the blog this week… Today has been far too nice to spend indoors, so I’ve been outside most of the day. It was hot enough to make me escape indoors to cool off and the wildlife and garden certainly seemed to think it was summer. I saw at least 4 Peacock butterflies, but suspect there may have been more. I managed the first lawn cut of the year, and do not look forward to the next job looming at the back of my mind… I need to thatch the lawn of as much moss as I can manage before my arms turn to jelly. It’s surprising how tiring it is just scraping a spring-tine rake long the grass. My attempt to coax my brother to do it for me failed. Another time maybe.
This week’s vase is courtesy of my mother. However, all the plants are from my garden. I took them to her for Easter and she arranged them in the cute little jug I bought her for mother’s day (and really wish I had one for myself).
As she loved my little bottles I bought last year, mum also picked some up… Not sure why she didn’t get the same though. Hrm there’s an idea for a Christmas present…
In the three vases we have Forsythia and Osmanthus.
I just wish I had more Pulmonaria to give for this vase… in fact actually I had planned to also cut some Erysimum blooms, but in the end forgot in my rush to leave the house.
Perhaps I’ll try hunting down some more small jug vases for myself.
