A collection of potted plants

A collection of potted plants

Well hello there! Have you come to see what I’ve gathered from the garden this week to create a vase for the meme “In a Vase on Monday”?  I do hope so!  It has been a lot of fun finding different vases, flowers and ideas for this meme. Cathy at Rambling in the Garden is the lovely host, and you can visit her blog here: http://ramblinginthegarden.wordpress.com .  While you are there, you can check out the links to other vases too.

Afternoon sunlight

Geraniums, marigolds and calendula flowers bathing in afternoon sunlight

The weather had been quite mild for September and October.  But recently we had our first hard frost, and the forecast is for more cold weather.  So I thought I should feature my potted plants (quick, before they are destroyed!).

The vase is pewter and was given to me by a very special friend (thank you Jean!).  I thought it was perfect for my little posy.

Simply lovely

The afternoon sunlight coming in the house was absolutely lovely.  I have been going at warp speed of late, so it was incredibly wonderful to take some time to pick, cut, and photograph the flowers in that sunlight.  It really is amazing the difference lighting can make.

Later that night...

See?  That picture doesn’t have the same “sparkle” as the ones with sunlight.

A nice arrangement all the same

Still, I’ll take the arrangement as it adds some life to our kitchen.

And that is me and my “In a Vase on Monday” all finished!  A quick one today.  But I do hope you enjoyed it!

Until next week 🙂
