Sometimes you just have to get out of bed and into the garden. Yes. Even when you're sick. I know, I'm sorry...I'm still carrying on about being ill, but it's been a major set-back and I'm not over it...ugh.
So after 20 days and 20 nights of rain (seriously) we had sun. Finally. I couldn't tackle anything on my long garden to-do list but how taxing would it be to wander around the garden and take some cuttings and put them in a vase? Heck that couldn't be bad at all, in fact a little sun and fresh air combined with touring the garden – well that's bound to make me feel better – right? I chose this rectangular vintage Haeger piece...
And cut some branches from the Grevillea australis.
Which is really prettier than it looks in that photo above.
A few fresh new leaves from the Macleya cordata.
And a couple from Persicaria microcephala 'Red Dragon'.
And a handful of Ceanothus 'Dark Star' twigs. I do love the flower buds maybe even more than the flowers.
The finished mash-up...
Having this on the dining table helps me to feel a little better connected to what's going on out in the garden.
I wonder if the Ceanothus flowers will open?
As always visit Rambling in the Garden for more Monday vases...
