In a Vase on Monday: Looking for Light

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!
