In A Vase On Monday

Afternoon Everyone,

It's been quite a while since my last In A Vase On Monday post. Mainly because it's been too cold, too windy, too wet, too stormy and just too awful to go looking in my garden for suitable material. In fact, I've been making do with potted plants, including a rather lovely poinsettia, for indoor colour over the last few weeks.  Today, however, I ventured out to pick fresh herbs - rosemary, savory and bay leaves - to add to a pot of soup I was making,  and that's when I spotted the winter jasmine just coming into bloom. 
And had I not been lured down the garden to pick the jasmine, I wouldn't have seen the hellebore flowers too.
They look so cheerful when just about everything else in the garden is either dead or dormant. I've added a few sprigs of myrtle to fill out the arrangement. 

For more seasonal and beautiful arrangements follow this link to Cathy's blog, Rambling In The Garden. You will find it well worth looking. 

Take care and have a lovely week.

That looks so festive, Elizabeth - just going to show how the simplest of vases can bring great pleasure. I have just retrieved your comments from spam today, hence my very delayed look at your post. Hope your Christmas was a happy one and thank you for my card - hope your snowdrops are doing well!
