I’ve picked a bunch of hellebores to put in a vase on Monday and share with Cathy at Rambling in the Garden. 🙂 Cathy is celebrating 5 years of blogging, which is wonderful and inspirational.
Here’s the vase:
Beside the cat we have a big bunch of hellebores, with a supporting cast of rose foliage and sprigs of pear blossom.
Hellebores don’t last long as cut flowers, but they’re such beautiful blooms that I had to bring a few indoors for admiration. The rose leaves are deep burgundy, and are just pruning clippings that would otherwise be compost today. So although it’s a little odd to use rose for foliage, it seems to work in this display.
In the background is the quince blossom that I mistakenly labelled as crabapple last week. In the few months that I’ve been blogging about the garden I’ve learned lots from other garden bloggers who’ll share tips and insights and gently correct my mistakes.
Here’s to five years of Cathy’s blog! 🌱🌿🌺🥂🍾🎂💐🙂
