The last day of the year, a time to think back over the passing year and look forward to 2019. But this post is not going to be about nostalgia, but rather hope that this year will be better than the last not so much for me but for the world – I hope for peace and some common sense from all the world’s politicians (non of whom seem to have shown much sense in 2018).
It is Monday and so that means thinking of a vase to join with Cathy at Rambling in the garden. Would there be anything to pick? I knew there was a Canna in the greenhouse; the plant that had been in a pot in the garden all summer seemed to find new life when I brought it into the greenhouse at the end of November and has been flowering ever since.
I seem to remember that it is Canna Cleopatra
Iris unguicularis has been flowering since November, there are now several clumps around the garden all full of flowers so enough to spare for a vase. I know from experience that they don’t last long in a vase but will bring a smile to my face for a couple of days.
Cathy has turned to foliage for here vase today; I wonder what you will find in your garden today to cut and bring indoors to enjoy.
I wish you a very Happy New Year and hope that it will bring all you hope for. My very best wishes to you all.
