I must start by saying that my colourful vase from last week is still going strong and the Mahonia is making our room smell amazing. Well I think so, Mr C claims not to be able to smell it. The daffodils didn't last long so, Cathy, you have every right to have a smug look on your face!
On the same note the vase from the previous week with Pieris and Heuchera lasted until it was knocked over today. So the small treasures do give long vase life.
This week's vase is a slight cheat as I made it on Thursday. I decided to join in with a new idea on Instagram #whatsoutnow_january. I only just made it before the end of the month and here is my 'flat lay'.
(Good point Blooms at No 45 - my account is @floralacre I need to work harder at my marketing!)
I'm going to try and do this every month to give a pictorial record of what is flowering. It will become harder of course, as there is more to show. I left out the single rose which still has a flower and the Dianthus to keep it the look seasonal.
Afterwards I popped most of the things in a one of my favourite vases. The Hellebores looked pretty for a short while but I'd cut them too early really. They do better cut when more mature. Everything else is still looking pretty.
My garden has been covered in snow since Friday. We now have rain and a rise in temperatures so the snow is disappearing quickly. I can't say I'm sorry, it just makes everything hard work, I'll be pleased to get back to normal.
Thanks for visiting. Do hop over to Rambling in the Garden where Cathy encourages us to find things to put In a Vase on Monday.
