In A Corner
by petal & pins
Since it was cold and drizzly it was a quick sprint outside to pick something to use for joining in with Julie’s ‘In a Vase on Monday’ meme today.
At this time of year I can always find some bergenia flowers in my garden. I chose an old brass vase which I don’t usually use for fresh flowers and its oriental style has influenced the style of the arrangement.
The plum sticks I used in my ‘String of Pearls’ vase have dried nicely (as have the rowan berries) so I decided to make a lattice like element with them.
Combined with the bergenia flowers are three bergenia leaves in graduating sizes, a piece of clematis vine and a sprig of a variegated ground cover that no matter how much time I spend pulling it out of the garden it persists!
I have also added one of my silk butterflies – you can see how I’ve used them before in my post Butterfly Wings & Other Things.
I have photographed it in the corner of the fireplace bookshelf near a lovely embroidered panel my sister bought me on a trip to China, it’s not a spot I usually sit a vase but it works rather well so perhaps it’s time to rearrange a few things.
