In a vase on Monday – Teetering Tea Tree

img_5591

Just a quick post share a branch of the lovely Leptospermum (I think Scoparium).  Apparently the common name, ‘Tea tree’ arose because Captain Cook used the leaves to make a tea drink.  Who knew?

The vase was inspired by two things, firstly (and obviously) the fact that it’s flowering wonderfully now, but also the super spring branches I’ve seen arranged at Tilton House where I’ve just booked for another Yoga weekend in May (hurrah!)

The ‘vase’ is a water bottle provided in a restaurant in San Sebastian which I liked so much I insisted on lugging home in my suitcase.  Make sure to note how the label matches the flowers, as I expect next time you see it, the label will be missing – it’s only paper!

With thanks to Cathy who hosts all our Monday flowers – whatever they’re arranged in.img_5592

    Haha – yes, the label is a brilliant match! I was pleased to see this today because I have very recently added a leptospermum to my shrub border so look forward to having blooms myself later this year but perhaps more realistically next year
