Monday again, the day that Cathy from Rambling In The Garden challenges us to join in with her by making up a vase with something lovely from our garden. I wasn't able to join her last week - Storm Abigail was doing her worst and wreaking havoc in the garden - and things are only a little better today. However, I braved the wind to discover what has been spared. Much to my surprise there are still a lot of rosebuds, no full blooms though.
Just two simple ingredients made it into my little white Caithness glass vase. The bud is from the lovely rose, Simply the Best ... the red bud will open to a wonderful orange/peach bloom. I teamed it with the pretty crimson red berries of Hypericum Magical Red Flame - picked from a pot that is placed close to the kitchen door ... something to gladden the heart when it is much too cold to linger too long in the garden.
Having just got over the trail of destruction left by Abigail, I'm told Storm Barney is on his way. I fear my poor garden is in for another blasting!
Hope the weather is being kinder to you wherever you are.
