So this week’s In a Vase on Monday (thats two weeks now) is foliage from the garden, with the obligatory munched corner courtesy of the slugs. I think it is a good demonstration of how a winter garden doesn’t have to be borrowing or rely on coloured stems; which I’m not that keen on. The contents are a random selection of evergreen foliage including but not limited to:

  • Prostrate rosemary
  • Choisya ‘Sundance’
  • Arum
  • Buddleja salviifolia
  • Euphorbia characius ‘ Silver Swan’
  • Some form of unknown variegated ivy
  • A yellow variegated form of euonymus
  • A silver variegated form of suonymus

The vase is a simple cheap glass one, I could try and tell you that this was an artistic decision but really it was the only vase that held the foliage together.  So to make up for the lack of interest in the arrangement I decided to take the photograph outside …


…and within minutes our Ladyship, currently called ‘The Management’ decided to get in on the act.

Thank you Cathy for hosting this meme – for more vases pop over to Rambling in the Garden
