We had heavy rain all day Monday. I donned raincoat and boots, a basket and secateurs and went foraging for flowers. The pickings are a little slim but I found late roses, carnations, olive leaves and wintersweet. Enough to make this jewel-encrusted posy, and another little bunch of wintersweet for the bathroom counter (and later, my bedside table, so I would have sweet dreams). I also have a bowl of hyacinths unfurling on the hall table. My house is beautiful right now.
