In a vase this Monday from Frome in Somerset; cyclamen, daffodils, and clematis foliage, in a Prinknash bronze glazed pot.
The weather has been dramatic and changeable today, I picked these during a sunny spell which was immediately followed by a hailstorm. The wild weather has flattened a few of the largest daffodils but these little blooms are made of strong stuff.
The daffodils are ‘tete-a-tete’ narcissi, the cyclamen variety is unknown. Each of the plants came with us from London to our new home in Somerset.
This charming little metalic pot was made in Prinknash Abbey. The monks started a pottery when they found a seam of clay in the abbey grounds. These pots are cute and collectable, but can turn up in charity stores for just a few pounds.
In a Vase on Monday is hosted by Cathy, who invites gardeners around the world to share what is growing in their garden over on her blog Rambling in the Garden.
