  1. How fabulous to see a vase even though you are away…enjoy yourself. Here is my link as I am hopelessly addicted to your wonderful meme!

  2. That’s dedication for you! Well done on your improvisation skills! Hope you’re enjoying your holiday.

      Indeed – and at least I now know I can sit outside Tesco to get wifi access, although I wouldn’t always choose to do it at about 10.30 at night as I did in the previous post!

  3. Annette says:

    Second pic looks a bit foggy but that’s not unusual for Scotland ;). Lovely bunch of wildflowers, Cathy, enjoy your stay 🙂

    • Cathy says:

      Thanks Annette – I took 4 photos of the vase and each one got progressively ‘foggier’, the result of a relatively warm camera on a cool damp morning and a steamed up lens!! I decided Iiked the misty quality of the last one so included it too. Surprisingly it was just as hot in Scotland as the rest of the UK until Saturday after which we had some rain. Back home now, where it is still hot and dry….

    Hi Cathy, hope you are enjoying your time away. The wildflowers make a lovely vase. My vase this week can be found here: 🙂

    • Cathy says:

      Thanks Elizabeth – I must remember to carry a wild flower book with me when we go away in case I post on the move again (not that I had time today to list the ones I knew anyway). I have brought the vase back home with me where I can still enjoy it, as usual.

      • Elizabeth W says:

        Hi Cathy, how nice that you’ve been able to bring the vase home with you – have you looked up the names of the wildflowers yet? Many thanks for the suggestion to encourage the EM to label his plants … I now wrest the labels from him as he is planting them out and keep them safely tucked away in a box 🙂

      Thanks Kris – I couldn’t NOT post a vase! 😉

    • Cathy says:

      Kris – are my comments on your post going into spam? They seem to disappear into the ether…

      • Kris P says:

        I think I’m getting your comments but I’ll double check my spam folder. All comments are now submitted for moderation before publication as my spam content has suddenly gone through the roof, so comments are posted whenever I get a chance to review my e-mailbox (i.e. about 2x per day). I’m sorry about the delay but I refuse to give the spammers even temporary floor space on my blog, especially given some of their very questionable links. I saw your comment about the re-blog of last week’s vase post – Blogger doesn’t provide an alert to these and I couldn’t find it when I searched.

    You are so dedicated Cathy… even on holiday there’s no stopping you! Lol! Hope you are enjoying yourselves. My vase this week is here:

    • Cathy says:

      But it also shows how easy it is to find something for a vase – on a verge almost right next to our campervan! The only problem is finding free wifi!

    Hi Cathy – I have just realised you have been away as well – well done for keeping up with your challenge – I feel very inadequate now having taken a few weeks off!

    You can find my vase this week at

    • Cathy says:

      I’m sure you deserved your break as much as anybody Julie – and as I had set the challenge I thought I better at least post a photo. The little vase wasn’t a problem but finding free wifi was!

    Well done for still doing a vase – I love those yellow wild flowers, I wonder what they are?
    Here is my vase this week – and with flowers I actually picked today!

    • Cathy says:

      I was pleased to find this little selection in a very small area – I thought the yellow was ragwort, but Chloris suggest tansy.

  11. kristin says:

    Simply lovely! I hope you are enjoying your vacation in Scotland!

    • Cathy says:

      Thanks Kristin – most of it was in Glasgow for the Commonwealth Games but we did have a night at my Mum’s on the west coast too.

    You put me to shame. I’m at home and yet hardly have time to read my favourite bloggers, photograph a vase of flowers, post a photo or finish a post for my neglected blog. I admire your work ethic, tenacity and enthusiasm.

    • Cathy says:

      I’m clearly a real paragon of virtue, Christine 😉 Just glad I have weaned myself off posting every day – so no withdrawal symptoms 🙂

  13. Chloris says:

    How enterprising. Your flowers are knapweed and tansy and the berries are honeysuckle berries. I hope you had a wonderful time in Scotland.

    • Cathy says:

      Thanks Chloris – I knew the knapweed and honeysuckle but thought the yellow was probably ragwort. You think tansy? There was some plantain in there too – and is the ‘red stuff’ mugwort?

  14. Admirable dedication Cathy! Hope you had a fab time away. I’ve been playing with the dahlias again:

    • Cathy says:

      Thanks Janet – and trying out the campervan for the first time too 🙂 I have looked at the PN catalogue and see what you mean about the dahlias – avoided that section in the past due to extra postage but want to order some lilies from it so will look at dahlias too.

  15. Anna says:

    Most resourceful Cathy 🙂 Hope that the maiden voyage went smoothly.
