It is a little known (alternative) fact that Maria von Trapp was a keen galanthophile and collector of small vintage objects, and that the unabridged version of ‘My Favourite Things’ included a line about Snowdrops in Inkpots. I bet you’ll be singing that in your head all day long now.
The snowdrops are on the cast iron mantelpiece underneath a print by Jo Aylward. The penguin is holding a fine country house and he has some topiary on his head. And topiary is my current absolute favourite gardening thing.
In a Vase on Monday is hosted by Cathy at Rambling in the Garden, and I recommend visiting her page to see what other garden bloggers around the world have found to put in vases today.
