I've managed to make a big vase and that makes me happy.
I collected some Hellebores and then some twigs to add some height.
I pushed in behind our oil tank to cut this Helleborus foetidus and then looked around to see what else could go in.
Just next to it is a Leycesteria which needs a prune so that was a good reason to cut some green stems. The last week I pruned a Cornus. It has very dark red stems and, though not very big yet, I know it will benefit from a hard cut. So I dived in and did it and the red stems are here.
Oh yes, there is some Bay too.
The I added this white and green hellebore. It would not win prizes as the colouring is not good but it has been flowering now for weeks and I am quite happy to have it in the garden and in a vase. I did sear the stems in boiling water to see if they will last a little longer.
See what you can find to share in a vase an join in with Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for In a Vase on Monday.
