Having been away last weekend, it feels like the garden has moved on significantly in a fortnight. One plant, Euphorbia characias Wulfennii, to me epitomises spring with its fresh, zingy, lime green flower heads, and it has self seeded in a number of places. The fact that those places aren’t necessarily the ones I would have chosen, made cutting it for today’s vase seem like a good idea.
In the photo above you can also glimpse a branch of a very leggy pink tipped Hebe, which I was also happy to sacrifice as, too be honest, the whole plant should probably come out.
To these I added some gorgeous Hellebore blooms. Whilst I recognise they don’t last as long in the vase as they do in the garden, I also recognise that if they’re in the house I will see much more of them so, snip!
I do like the contrast between the dark and the ‘zing’. Why don’t you go to Cathy’s website Rambling in the Garden to see what others have put together in their vases this weeks?
