In a Vase on Monday: I Wish….

I know it’s Monday. I know I ought to be offering a vase. Cathy at Rambling in the Garden  has created this wonderful meme that invites us to share what is growing in our gardens in a vase to brighten our homes. And I know Cathy will be disappointed in me, but….

Alas (sigh) we have experienced sleet, snow and quite low temperatures for this area. I had hoped to display a few of the winter pansies today. This photograph will explain why I must plead absence this Monday.


At least we didn’t get the 8-10 inches of snow that was forecast, and the forecast is for warming later this week. I did get most of my winter cleanup accomplished before the storm. Perhaps I’ll even be able to get in my tennis match on Thursday.

Please visit Cathy’s blog at Rambling in the Garden to see what she and so many others have brought in from their gardens this week.

    It happens to us all John. You’ll soon have some flowers again.

    Best to stay in, plan and read seed catalogues!

    It’s a bit of a contrast going from this at the beginning of the week to tennis later on! Enjoy your wine and cheese and tennis, even if you are unable to enjoy tasks in the garden 😉

    I can feel for you this week John – we have a little more snow than you, with more forecast, and I didn’t even venture out today! Hope it clears up for your tennis match!

    My gardens still are underneath 10-12 inches. More than I can remember falling — and staying in a very long time!

    I love this photograph with the tiny frozen droplets hanging from the leaves and flowers like miniature icicles.
