In A Vase On Monday - back again

Hello Everyone.

And happy Monday to you all.

It's been quite a long time since I've been able to join in with Cathy's meme, In A Vase On Monday, but it's been a long winter!
At last it's been sunny enough and dry enough to enable me to take a wee wander round the garden, secateurs at the ready. This little quartet of vases is filled with snippings of Osmanthus x burkwoodii, Winter Jasmine, Jasminum nudiflorum, and the earliest of dwarf daffodils, narcissus Tete-a-Tete - a very welcome harbinger of spring. The scent of the flowers of the Osmanthus, once fully open, is so strong it easily fills a room. Delightful!

Now that the weather is improving, and the storms have eased off, I have high hopes of getting out into the garden more often. There's a lot of tidying up to be done after weeks of neglect. And, hopefully, there will be more floral material to pick and fill a vase, or four!

Linking this post to Cathy's meme, In A Vase On Monday, on Rambling in the Garden and joining with many others who share whatever they have found to put in a vase this week. If you have filled a vase today, I'm sure you would be very welcome to join in too.

Your red tiles make such a good backdrop, Elizabeth! You say 'quartet of vases' but it only looks like two - are there two directly behind these? They look so springlike and although I have no idea what osmanthus smells like I believe you when you tell me it is glorious! Thanks for sharing today and hope you can be back soon

You picked the perfect backdrop for those lovely vases, Elizabeth. I'm a little in love with the sheep too.
