Mr. Fokker Anemone & primroses

Mr. Fokker Anemone & primroses

It is cold, wet and windy outside! So goes our January. The wind would knock your socks off!  Nevertheless, the sun has made several appearances so really I shall not complain.

I took a little break from my blog over the Christmas holiday.  I wasn’t really taking a break from blogging but rather making more time for the family.  I like blogging and was looking forward to getting back to it!  So when the sun was shinning bright on Saturday I decided to run outside and see what I could find for the meme In a Vase on Monday, hosted by Cathy at Rambling in the garden (http://ramblinginthegarden.wordpress.com).  It was COLD outside!

I have loads of Mr Fokker Anemone in the garden. Unfortunately, where they are in the garden doesn’t see the sun until the very end of the day (if at all).  So they are closed up most of the time.  It was lovely to watch them open after being placed in warm water in the candle holder (their vase).

The colours are lovely.  I kind of squished the primrose into the vase.  That bright pink is fabulous in the yard.  I have to say they look rather lonely though, as everything around them is pretty much in sleep/winter mode.

The candle holder usually sits in a room which we rarely use. So the only job it has is to collect dust.  I’m glad to put it to better use.

It is always fun to try and be a little creative with what is in the garden and what vase to use.  I hope you’ve enjoyed my In a Vase on Monday post!

I have to say that it is nice to have flowers in the garden in January.

I hope you have a good week and that you are nice and warm, wherever you may be!

Peace,
