In a Vase on Monday: Camellia & Forsythia

Thanks to Cathy at Words and Herbs for exposing me to the possibilities of the garden blog meme, “In a Vase on Monday.”

I also have to admit it took me until early middle age to embrace my love of gardening and plants. Growing up in the USA in the 50’s and 60’s flowers were not a pursuit that boys could cultivate. More on that issue here.

Happy Monday!
