Especially in that vibrant spring green jug! The colour lifts them perfectly.
I love this oversized jug!
We have lots, which I can't see from the house, as they are right at the bottom of our L-shaped garden. I'd never thought of bringing them in! Thanks.
I think I enjoy them better close up Linda.
Love this vibrant colour splash!
A lovely sight at the end of a long, taxing week. Thank you!
Enjoy your weekend Mary.
'They were brought under sail
from a red-tinged east,
carried down gangplanks
in dockers' arms. Innocent
and rare. Their thick leaves
bore a salt-damp gleam,
their blooms a hidden gargle
in their green throats.'
The first verse of Rhododendrons, by Scottish poet Kathleen Jamie in Waterlight. She wrote more poems under the same title.
My (thoroughly weeded) poetry collection is on a brand new shelf since yesterday after almost four months of being boxed up.
Thank you for this beautiful and apt poem Cath. I love Kathleen Jamie's writing. How wonderful to have your poetry collection back!
would never have thought to bring them in. agree w Lotta the green vase is perfect.
They last well too Cathy.
