It’s Monday again and I’m delighted to be able to contribute to Cathy’s popular meme „In a Vase on a Monday“. Don’t forget to go over to her to see what others have put in their vases today. My vase features hips of rambling roses and some sprigs of Hypericum „Magical Beauty“. Much to the delight of the wild boars and our dog there’s also a bumper harvest of sweet chestnuts 😉

Hips

Shiny red jewels

delicious crop of yesteryear’s bloom

brightening November’s gloom

dew and frost make them sparkle

like precious gems –

our treasured winter friends.
