Why are the weather gods intent on conspiring to thwart me from taking photographs on Mondays? Another windy and slightly mizzly afternoon here so I had to resort to taking a photo indoors in the still and the dry. My 'In A Vase On Monday' is most simple this week being a couple of stems of hellebore flowers. These accidentally parted company from their respective plants yesterday afternoon. I realised that I hadn't removed the old foliage from a couple of hellebores that are planted in pots, so was prompted into remedial action. I was obviously not paying as much attention as I should have done as these flower stems were snipped off too along with the tatty leaves. After muttering a few choice words under my breath I put them straight into water and should have taken a photo there and then. However it was one of those rather special dry and almost balmy February afternoons when I got carried away on a roll of gardening activities. You know how it is. So some twenty fours hours later I've finally taken my photo. My vase is one of a trio of old school milk bottles purchased on a trip to to the beguiling medieval town of Rye last summer.
Thank you to Cathy over at 'Rambling In The Garden' for providing such a pleasurable way to start the week.
