It is a long time since I have joined in with Cathy from Rambling in the Garden’s lovely In A Vase On Monday meme thanks to work and general business, but I was inspired to post this week by my simple bouquet of sweet peas.
I was out in the front garden this morning tying up these beauties and made sure to cut all the blooms to keep them flowering, even though I was enjoying their loveliness outdoors.
My little bouquet is now sitting on our dining room mantelpiece beside a postcard of ‘Bathers’ by Vanessa Bell. Today it feels like summer although there are storms predicted for tomorrow.
This afternoon I am lucky enough to be going along to Monk’s House, the Sussex home of Bell’s sister Virginia Woolf, where together with the head gardener from Charleston where I volunteer and other volunteers, we will be looking round and helping in the garden.
