Summer has arrived. At last! And, of course, I've been pottering in the garden most of the day and not so much making hay while the sun shone but deadheading daffodils and pulling up weeds. And that is why this post for Cathy's In A Vase On Monday is so late.
are maybe a bit too big but I couldn't resist the bright lime freshness of the new growth. They will darken soon enough.
About the vase. The markings on the base suggests that it's a pre-1900 transfer printed Wedgwood Etruria vase. I need to do a bit more research on it but if it turns out to be genuine it's quite a find. Whether it's real or fake, I think it's lovely anyway.
According to the weather forecast it's going to be another good day tomorrow so I'm planning get out into the garden again. I picked up several pelargonium plants from the garden centre today which, together with herbs I've been nursing through winter, need to be potted up ready for the summer. That's assuming that these few sunny days aren't going to be our only summer!
Happy gardening everyone,
