I’d like to thank all of you who left comments or sent emails to check that we were Okay after the earthquake yesterday morning. I have to admit that this shock was terrifying! It seemed to go on forever (probably in reality only a minute) and the house really shook this time; I believed that it wasn’t possible that it would stay standing after shaking so much; all my friends here said they had never experienced anything so strong. What of course I was thinking of while it was happening was “where is the epicentre?” and ” I hope there is no loss of life”. Thankfully most of the hill towns had already been evacuated after a couple of less shocks on Thursday evening. My fear now is that these are not aftershocks but are all pre-shocks for something bigger; I hope that this isn’t the case.
My vase today is a celebration of all the flowers in the garden, not just the cut flower beds; as I showed in my last post the garden is revelling in the warm moist conditions and many plants are flowering again.
I used the lovely chunky crystal vase that I bought in Tuscany this summer.
A big thank you to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for hosting; do visit to see what magic she has conjured.
