Today is special, Cathy at Rambling in the Garden‘s blog is 5 years old and she has a very special vase to share with us today.
Cathy has inspired and encouraged us all with this great meme. Monday really wouldn’t be the same without it. Thank you Cathy and Happy Blogaversary!
Suddenly after 3 very warm days and despite the coldish nights all the trees are in blossom; there are wild plums everywhere and one of my cultivated plums is covered in white flowers, but it is the pretty pink blossom of the peach tree that I have included in my vase today.
I decided to attempt an Ikebana design (this is a first for me) using a stem clamp and pins that I bought in England at Christmas when I was in a florists’supplier to buy the necessary equipment for the flower display for the top of my MIL’s coffin.
The shop was a treasure trove and my thanks go to Julie at Peonies and Posies for recommending it to me.
Why not pick something from your own garden to help Cathy celebrate.
