After a long pause, I’m joining in with Cathy’s In a Vase on Monday meme at Rambling in the Garden.
To counteract my tendancy to negativity, my husband (otherwise known as the Bon Viveur) went out by torchlight on Saturday night and picked this vase of daffodils and tulips flowering in the garden at the moment.
Triumphantly he waved at it on Sunday morning: ‘Look at what you grew!’
Good old negative me stepped in swiftly with: ‘But it wasn’t really me, it was the bulb suppliers.’
But, on second thoughts, I realised it was me. In the lower part of the garden, where we are just starting to cultivate (hence the scruffy garden picture!) we have two banks that I am packing full of spare/special offer shrubs and bulbs that have served time in their first year elsewhere in the garden (where they were guaranteed to give a show).
I got that idea of digging up bulbs after their garden premiere and replanting in ‘wild’ spots from The Garden Impressionists, Julian and Fiona Wormold. Do have a look at their blog, I’ve learnt a lot and been inspired a lot.
Anyway, the idea is working here. And Nick’s Vase on Monday has perked me up no end!
Go on over and look at what all the other Monday Vasers are doing on Cathy’s Rambling in the Garden!
