Cathy at Rambling in the Garden has issued an In a Vase on Monday Weekly Challenge to create a vase from things we’ve gathered from our own garden. I first heard about it from friend and fellow blogger Elizabeth at A Forest Garden. Cathy writes:
“You would be most welcome to join me and others in posting a vase every Monday or just once in a while. The spirit of the meme is to find material in your own garden or foraged locally to place in a container – but it is after all a personal challenge so there are no strict rules.”
Living in New England, my garden is still sleeping under a couple feet of snow, so pickings are few and far between. However, I clipped a few sprigs of forsythia from the edge of the garden last week and brought them in to force. It always lifts my spirits to see their pendulous golden bells. With our spring still months away, it’s fun to cheat just a little.
