With apologies to all those for whom “snow” is a four-letter-word of a different magnitude about now. This little copper frog is pretty excited, it seems.
I’m not sure that our snowdrops will ever amount to anything that might be called a drift. Not only are their numbers insignificant, but they stay closed up outdoors in the cold.
Bring them into the warmth of the house, though, and they immediately reward us by opening to reveal their lovely markings.
I needed some filler to hold them in place and it needed to be delicate. My only successful Hebe, ‘Quicksilver’ is gradually getting a haircut as I trim pieces to use in vases. It is beginning to engulf the sculpture made by a friend using rusty pieces from salvage yards.
It still needed a little something, so a few stems of bamboo leaves were just the ticket. Visit Cathy (Rambling in the Garden) to get in on the fun of In a Vase On Monday.
