In hindsight, a Monday vase with a seasonal content might have been more appropriate today, but to be honest it still seems somewhat far-fetched that it is Christmas on Friday, a mere 4 days away, and it didn’t even occur to me till I was about to write this post. Thus, we have instead a demure little posy of violas (yet another Aldi bargain), plucked from two baskets at the front of the house and popped into a brass inkwell with a verdigris finish, along with tips of a bright green carex.
A number of other vintage ink wells complete the display, so all wells; Saturday afternoon saw millions in the UK witness their Christmas plans being thrown into confusion, as further restrictions were suddenly imposed. Disappointing, but understandable, and as long as we stay safe then in the circumstances all’s well.
Have you time to find something from your garden to pop in a vase or jam jar today? Please share it with us on IAVOM if you can, leaving links to and from this post.
