~ In A Vase on Monday (oops make that Tuesday!)

Actually, I gathered the flora for this vase on Monday, however the day ‘got away from me’ so here is the finished product on Tuesday.


Heather (Calluna vulgaris) is a shrub I have always loved — perhaps from my Scotch heritage and the song “Heather on the Hill.” It is in full bloom here, and I’ve added some of the berries from Black Mountain Huckleberry (Vaccinium membranaceum) a native to my gardens. The vase is one I purchased from Orcas Island Pottery. Here’s to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden  for helping me see what is still lovely in my early winter gardens!

    That Orcas Pottery Vase is gorgeous and a perfect colour for the heather and those dark berries. Thank you for sharing what is still lovely in your early winter gardens – and I am pleased you are enjoying it too!

    We’re blanketed in two inches of snow this morning — beautiful. Sure glad I’m retired and don’t have anywhere I need to go today!
