It is the time you have wasted for your rose that makes your rose so important.
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Goodness, I do adore a bit of Monday-morning faffing.
These roses were in part rescued from last week’s vase, and the rest cut from the garden. I am growing to love the extreme dearth of light that comes into this flat, and embrace it for its moodiness rather than fretting over the darkness.
And after this especially productive morning, I am now going to try and cram a day’s work into the next two hours of daylight.
In a Vase on Monday is hosted by Cathy at Rambling in the Garden, who challenges garden bloggers across the world to do some beautiful weekly faffing with vases.
