I’m not very often late with my post for ‘In a vase on Monday’ hosted by Cathy at Rambling in the garden. My excuse is that it was my birthday yesterday which is also Viterbo’s patron saint’s day. I have written about Santa Rosa before and I’ll post some images of this years celebration later in the week. On the eve of the day a 100 foot high tower is carried through the streets of the city and the evening ends with a wonderful fireworks display which seems to be directed at the windows of our apartment in the city so I often celebrate my birthday there with friends so we can all enjoy the fireworks and the excitement of the evening together.Of course this called for flowers for the table!
I know I said last week that I didn’t like using it but it really seemed to be the only way. I’d had the foam for some time and although it was still in its original packing it really didn’t absorb water as it should so sadly some of the flowers only lasted the evening!
