January certainly lives up to its bad reputation! Whereas we sat outside until the new year, we’re now huddled up against the stove searching warmth and comfort. Our December window made way for the January window exploring shades of grey and brown. A fallen willow in the woods supplied this week’s vase. Dried and dead bracken leaves adorn a ribbon – fragile, beautiful silhouettes against the grey sky. Icicles catch the light. The vase is a bottle of wine (1952) which we drank with friends after my book launch in September. Thanks to Cathy for hosting the meme – I don’t take part that often but always enjoy it immensely. It’s a great inspiration to see what others come up with, so do check out their vases here. Happy Monday 🙂
