In a Vase on Monday - A Knitted, Winter One

Suntem sub ninsori mari și e greu să mai faci vaze de luni, aproape că voiam să renunț. Noroc cu un vas alb, ”tricotat”, care m-a ”forțat” să găsesc ceva de pus în el, că mi s-a părut că se potrivește foarte bine cu vremea și peisajul de afară. Așa că iată-mă cu încă o vază, în care am pus ce am găsit mai sus și am putut să iau: mâțișori de alun, frunze de nandine, de Euonymus fortunei 'Emerald 'n' Gold', bobițe de caprifoi și o mușcată din interior, că trebuia și un strop de culoare./ We have been under heavy snow for a few days and one could hardly arrange a Monday vase with flowers from the garden. But I have almost been forced to do it by my beloved ”knitted” container that I had in mind to use as it is so in line with the weather and the scenery outside. So, here I am once more this Monday with what I could pick and were higher enough to get them: catkins, Nandina, Euonymus fortunei 'Emerald 'n' Gold', Honeysuckle blackberries and a Geranium, as a drop of colour was needed, too.

  4. How creative, Anca! I never would have thought of a knitted vase, and the cables are so crisp! The white background really accentuates the black berries, pink flower, variegated leaves, and catkins.
