I am joining with In a Vase on Monday.
I haven’t posted here for a very long time. The main reason is that I don’t have a garden at present due to the fences being pulled down for house renovations…..the wallabies and pademelons got in and ate everything!! However, I have just had the pleasure of visiting the Melbourne International Garden and Flower Show and there were so many displays of flowers in vases…..I just wanted to dip my toe in again and share them with you.
The brief for this competition was Ikebana, a Japanese style of flower arrangement. This one was my favourite….I confess, I have an obsession with Sunflowers at the moment. I have also included some Japanese Haiku.

their yellow glory fading
