I’m late again with my vase because we were in England for the wedding of my husband’s goddaughter. I have to say the weather was a bit of a shock. On Thursday when we arrived it was warm, the same temperature as here in Italy; but from then it all changed, on Thursday on a quick visit to Wisely it was cold and windy and there were showers which made us spend more time in the shop and cafe than in the garden. Perhaps this wasn’t too important as it certainly wasn’t looking at its best, the hot summer had taken its toll.
Sadly for the wedding day itself it rained and was cold all day, but the radiant smile of the bride warmed us all. Yesterday as we left early to catch our flight home it was 3°C (or so the car told us). Winter, if only for that day. I was relieved to arrive home to some warmth, this week the temperatures should remain in the high 20’s although there is a strong wind here today from the north.
The young man who helps me in the garden left some cut flowers for me which I hadn’t expected, here’s the vase I arranged this morning.
I’m sure you will have already visited Cathy at Rambling in the garden to see her vase for this week, but if you haven’t. do!
