In A Vase On Monday ~ Beachcombing.


You might be able to guess where the materials making this week's vase have been collected. Shells, stone, pine cones, sun bleached grasses and the odd strand of an unidentified succulent have been found all within a hundred metres of our campervan. This impromptu arrangement is sitting in an empty chestnut yoghurt jar, the contents of which made for delicious eating last night. 


Thanks as always to Cathy over at 'Rambling In the Garden' for being such a gracious hostess. I'm off to dip my toes in the ocean but will return later to enjoy vases from far and wide.

  1. Oh to collect bits and pieces by the coast, lovely. We've just come back from Northumberland, where I had a lovely time. Lots of wild flowers, which I am starting to post on my blog.

  11. Vases of random plants and displays of random things are great except when crammed in. I cram in! I must learn from elegance.

All your comments are much appreciated and treasured. I wil try to reply to everyone who leaves a comment, but it may take me a few days, especially when I start spending more time in the garden and at the lottie.
