It has been many weeks since I posted a vase for Monday as I really do not have much of anything in this garden. Today however I do, hence the hoorah.


I have snipped two very precious blooms to share with you,  precious not because they are rare or special varieties, rather they are precious because they are blooms that survived the rather rough carriage from the old garden to the new. They remain in the pots that were used to transport them but will be getting to settle into a new patch very soon.  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The daylight is very grey today and despite my best efforts, the colour is not a true reflection of the flowers.  The paler bloom, name long lost, is really a rather fresh green and the mauve one is actually a pink grey tone.

For those that are interested in such things, the little hand painted blue jug is only about 8cm and came from the Isle of Wight.  I have had it for over 30 years as it was an engagement present from a family friend and neighbour, Sue.

So maybe not the most impressive little picking today, but something!

For a rather more colourful collection take a look at Cathy and other bloggers who have joined her meme at http://ramblinginthegarden.wordpress.com/2015/03/09/in-a-vase-on-monday-bottling-it-up
