After the snow last week I was determined to be prepared for a vase this Monday, as I always like to join in this meme hosted by Cathy at Rambling in the Garden when I can. So a few grasses and hazel catkins were gathered during the week. I then added dried Sedum and some poppy seedheads collected in the summer and autumn. I came across this coffee pot, hiding away in a cupboard, and decided it looked quite festive and was perfect as a vase!
There are also a few cornus twigs and some Mahonia foliage which is drying up fast as I haven’t added water to the vase.
This morning Hippeastrum ‘Lady Jane’ decided to open yet another flower for a snapshot too. She is definitely at the top of the list for next year’s bulbs as she has flowered beautifully on relatively short stems.
Here you can see her alongside my second festive vase filled with fir and larch cones and Silver Fir needles from the garden (with a couple of shiny baubles!).
If you only visit my site for the Monday vases, then I would like to wish you a very Happy Christmas and a joyful festive season!
