Surprise as I wasn't expecting to find anything much to go in my vase. Instead I was able to pick a cheerful posy which promises that spring might be coming.
I knew the Tete-a-Tete narcissus were flowering and the hellebores have revived after their covering of snow.
In remember this one being particularly pretty last year and it has thrown up more flowers this year so hopefully it is settling in.
Mahonia flowers add some scent and pulmonaria some lovely blue and pink. They too suffered but are rallying.
Many of the evergreen shrubs are looking worse for wear but this reliable Ceanothus was able to provide some green foliage.
I'm joining in with Cathy at Rambling in the Garden and her inventive band of followers who always have something creative to show In a Vase on Monday.
I have the luxury of time for posting this morning rather than rushing off to work. MrC and I have the week off so there is no excuse for not having the garden whipped into shape by next weekend. The list of jobs is long so we will see how that goes.
