Death did part us a while ago for those seedheads have been picked last year and perfectly illustrate the mood of this month, when we are in limbo as there’s not much to do outside and we anxiously await spring to feel the earth again and to take stock of our losses. Because after the cold there’ll be losses and new spaces waiting to be filled. Today’s vase holds teasel (Dipsacus fullonum) and some umbellifers which I found on a ramble through the woods. The birds are singing in the garden, a sweet reminder that after every winter there’ll be a spring. So let’s cherish this thought and everything will seem less dull! Thanks to Cathy for hosting the vase on a Monday – don’t forget to visit her to see vases from all over the world. You’re likely to find more colourful ones than mine! Happy Monday 🙂
