Snow is thawing all around me, and so I popped out into the garden to grab a few flowers, to share with Cathy’s gang ‘In a Vase on Monday.’
On first glance, there’s not much colour to be found, but on closer inspection a clump of purple hebe had emerged from the snow, the snowdrops and wallflowers are going strong, and of course the hellebores weren’t bothered by the cold.
I picked some hellebore, a sprig of quince, some wintersweet, and added a couple of sprigs of ivy and olive for foliage and texture.
Finally, I added a couple of hazel catkins to the mix, and popped the pot onto the windowsill with an aloe and spiderplant for company.
This little pot will add a pop of colour to my week.

I hope your plans and plants are coming along nicely,
