A bit of a cheat inasmuch as the vase contains the recycled stems of Cornus ‘Midwinter Fire’, the rose hips, and seedpods of Rudbeckia fulgens and crocosmia from last week, together with pickings made yesterday as we are not at home for a couple of days. I have used a slightly bigger stoneware pot this week and included ivy, the scalloped leaves of Hart’s tongue fern and black spears of Ophiopogon, giving a fresh and earthy update to the vase. If we had been at home I would have taken advantage of the flowers on the ‘Pink Perpetué’ that brightens up the approach to our front door, but didn’t like to think of them sitting all alone while we were away; hopefully next Monday I shall be including flowers again as well as foliage.
If you would like to find things in your garden or elsewhere and place them in a vase or similar on a Monday and post a picture on your blog, then feel free to also post a link in a comment on this post, so we too can see what you have found. I am enjoying the challenge myself!
