November can be dreary, and as the snow that fell on Saturday slowly melted on Sunday, the house seemed to be enveloped in gloom! Outside is rather unpleasant today; sleet and rain and a cold wind. So for my vase this week I decided to simply revamp some of the things I had in my posies last week.
Finding a good spot to get decent photos is not easy when the sun hides behind thick cloud. I tried the windowsill. (You can see how green the garden is looking again!)
And then I placed the vase on my mini sofa which is covered with a blanket I crocheted a couple of years ago. I liked that as a background, and with a couple of lamps on it suddenly looked a bit cheerier. The tealight will be lit later when I put the vase on my dining room table. 😃
Dark red Cornus twigs, a Hellebore and a Heuchera leaf, some sprigs of Leucothoe and a stem of the lovely Pelargonium sidoides which was looking a bit unruly and needed trimming. The plant came from a cutting Annette sent me, and when I saw how she had used it in her posy last week I knew I had to try it too. 😉
Thanks to Cathy Rambling in the Garden for hosting. Do visit her and see what others have found for a vase this week.
Thanks for reading and I hope you have some sunshine today!
