Five more long days ’til fun and frenetic Saturday, with her soccer matches and football games and errand-running. And then here comes Fun-day Sunday and her bicycle rides , brunches and rambles in the woods. (Maybe an afternoon nap, if the planets align.)
But don’t be so hard on Monday. Monday’s okay. Monday can be good.
Cathy, over at Rambling in the Garden brings much cheer to Monday with her In a Vase on Monday meme. Gather ye rosebuds while ye may and stick ’em in a vase. Snap a picture. Congratulate yourself on your teamwork with Mother Nature.
“But!” you cry. “That’s not a vase!”
Okay, so a pumpkin isn’t a vase. But, hey, give the artist (artist?) a bit of license.
A tin can inside a hollowed out pie pumpkin can make a dandy receptacle. Especially for these Cockscombs, or Celosia cristata, rescued from the garden before our first freeze–The night of October 17th in our Zone 6 neck o’ the woods for those keeping score.
I think it turned out quite nice…very autumn-y. Very October-y. Very Pumpkin-y. And we get to enjoy the Cockscombs for at least a few more days.
Is it freezing yet where you live? Any last minute flower/veggie grabs before Jack Frost made his visit?
