Standing in the kitchen this morning, nursing my mug of coffee and thinking about what to pick for today’s ‘vase’, my gaze landed on my grandma’s teapot. It’s from Portmeirion’s The Botanic Garden range and it depicts cyclamen and butterflies. I love it mostly because I loved my grandma very much and it reminds me of her.
It’s cyclamen season and we spent yesterday afternoon transplanting Cyclamen hederifolium tubers from the undergrowth at the bottom of the garden up to the side of the path we walk along all the time. Here we will be able to enjoy their gorgeous little blooms. There are so many hidden at the bottom of the garden that it didn’t feel wrong to snip a few this morning to show you. I’ve arranged them in a tiny porcelain cup that I bought in a junk shop years ago. It has ‘E & Co, France’ on its bottom and I bought it because I liked its delicate shape. I’ve been carting it around ever since and this is the first time I’ve used it!
I’m joining in with Cathy at Rambling in the Garden where you’ll find lots of other lovely arrangements from all around the world.
