I occasionally get mild dermatitis and tend to make a point of using toiletries for sensitive skin, which is why we have the rather bizarre prop of a bar of soap to accompany this very simple vase, in itself a replica of a little posy I took to friends last week.
I had been admiring the pink highlights in the blooms of my fairly new Sarcococca, S hookeriana ‘Winter Gem’ and decided to pair it with the equally fragrant deep pink blooms of Prunus mume ‘Beni Chidori, with the marbled leaves of Arum italicum ‘Marmoratum’ added as a finishing touch. The final result was simple but charming, so I am sharing the same material with you today in my Monday vase.
Not only is the vase simple, but with a busy weekend focussing on our open garden yesterday, the post is simple too – but I know you will forgive me.
If you would like to share pickings from your own garden on IAVOM today, then please leave the usual links – and after clearing up in the aftermath of our opening I will be pleased to catch up with what you have found to pop into your own vases.
