Today's Monday vase post must be kept very brief. One of the perils of living in a rural area is internet service providers that cap data usage. Somehow we have managed to get all too close to that limit rather early this month! But I do not want to miss the bright spot in Mondays, so here is today's vase - picture files sized down and text kept brief.
My still very small Texas Ranger bush has just started into full flower. I am a bit peeved with myself because somehow I failed to note down the variety. I have assumed it was a form of Leucophyllum frutescens, but it may instead be a form of L. candidum. At any rate, it came home looking little more than a few sticks in a can, but it is filling out into a promising young shrub now. And blooming its heart out!
So a few Leucophyllum stems, with their blue-purple bell flowers (blessed with a light sweet scent), went into my smallest vase, along with a couple of lantana stems with their twin flowerheads.
I won't be able to go check everyone else's vases this week, but I will link to Cathy's meme, which is the inspiration for all of this. Please understand that it may be awhile before I can respond to comments though I always appreciate them!
And I will limit the weather diary to “sunny and very warm” for today's post!
