artisan jug, forsythia, horse chestnut, in a vase on Monday, mitchell-finch online, pickle pot, snape maltings, sticks and stones
I have not managed to join Cathy https://ramblinginthegarden.wordpress.com with her Monday vase for a couple of weeks but this week I have got some sticks to show.
The first sticks are prunings from a friends forsythia. They were tight buds on Saturday and thanks to the warmth of the kitchen the yellow flowers have begun to open. In a pickle pot it is a bright shot of yellow.
Forsythia is not a shrub I really like but there is no denying, it does give a shot of colour after the browns and greys of Winter.
Then there are the other sticks.
This is a jug of horse chestnut sticky buds with a couple of stones.
Small pebbles hand decorated by Mitchell-finch online. These twigs were removed as part of preparation for a new structure in the garden. More about that another time.
I do love to see sticky buds, they were a childhood favourite.
Have a good week.
