Flowers in the house

Fierce weather has brought down some lovely branches at the edge of the woods. Just the job for making a rather lopsided Christmas wreath.

Here is my marsh orchid for flwrjane at smallbutcharming. It is as white as the hailstones that are hammering against the window pane.

Pull down the blind!

I've rescued a few bedraggled flowers from the garden. A couple of 'Iceberg' roses that were covered in ice sit in a vase with seeded parsley, some sage and bay leaves. Another small  vase contains colourful fuchsias.

The curtains are drawn and the wood burner lit. 
Keep warm.


  1. Each and every picture is perfect.

    Love the cones, the last rose and the cosy space.

    Thank you for inviting us in.

  2. Your flowers are lovely.
    Sounds like you are cocooning and cozy despite the weather.

    How clever of you to make that wreath from the wind felled branches.
    I cheated and bought ours.

  3. The wreath is lovely! Do I see The colors are so vibrant. I hope your storm has let up. Enjoy your evening.
