I put together a second vase too but, instead of learning a lesson from my first vase, I ended up cramming even more into the second vase. In my defense, this was partly because I took some of the leftovers from last week's vase that were still in good shape and added them to this one.
|The vase is an ornamental teapot I inherited|

Although the ceramic vases are similar in color, their contents are very different. The first one may make some viewers think of summer or fall, while the second may conjure images of spring but both are just representative of winter in coastal Southern California. Our proof that it's still winter here: it's raining again. Isn't that wonderful?! Winter is synonymous with rain here, or at least it was prior to the drought. It's pouring right now, which regrettably will probably mean mudslides somewhere but, in the meantime, the garden is enjoying the bounty.
|Photo from the front door. There's a small river of water flowing along the front of our driveway. We've already had nearly 2 inches of rain this morning.|
My vases are in place to brighten the house. For more "In a Vase on Monday" posts, visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden.
|The first vase sits on the dining room table and the second landed in the front entry|
