Thank goodness the wind has finally dropped and we can hear ourselves think once more. Outside these poor things have been battered by the wind.
This is the classy Clematis armandii, one stem, three lovely fresh flowers, seemingly unharmed. Behind it is a tiny twig of blossom in the softest pink Dwarf Prunus Nipponica ‘Ruby’.
Next I have taken a few heads from my Hellebores. These have remained largely in tact but one or two longer stems have nose dived and hit the dirt.
The wide awake amongst you may notice that viburnum bodnantense Dawn flowers and a viola are in this picture. Too pretty to not include in this little mix. I shall float these on water to enjoy them on my desk for a few days.
The forecast is improving and calmer which is great news. In this political climate, I guess I am not the only one grateful for any good news, no matter how small. For more cheer take a look at Cathy’s blog to see some glorious floral sights.
Have a good week wherever you are. D.
