It’s been a busy old Easter weekend with a trip to the dump on Friday (!) the mainland on Saturday, plenty of ‘housey’ issues to sort, and a college deadline to draw 10 construction drawings of steps, walls etc which I only started on Sunday (aaargh!) and am still struggling through.
Consequently, and sadly, gardening and blogging seem to have got rather squeezed out. However, some things are important and, although I’ve taken photos for Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day (due on the 15th!) I thought I’d allow myself a blogging minute and instead of catching up with that, I’m catching up with Cathy and all her lovely gang who take part in In a Vase on Monday.
My vase this week is a purple affair of Cerinthe major purpurescens, together with Tulip Queen of the Night.
and the whole lot lightened up by the pretty Narcissus Lieke. The vase itself is another from Repeat Repeat (see larger one here). I persuaded my sister to by this for the OH as a Christmas present (and I bought an even smaller one). I just love the simple relief pattern. They do mugs too, but so far I’ve resisted!
With thanks to Cathy who hosts all our vases, and provides a calm, flowery oasis to Mondays.
Right, literally, back to the drawing board!
