Last week's vases stood up relatively well. After a little tweaking, I shifted them to different spots with the new vase stationed in the front entry.
|All the middle vase needed were new stems of paperwhite Narcissus while the vase on the right was simplified, stripped of its rose, poppy and Grevillea stems|

There are positive signs on the horizon in my garden. My Freesias, Ceanothus, Calliandra, and one Echium all have buds and Camellia 'Taylor's Perfection' produced its first bloom on Saturday. How long it'll take for the buds to bloom isn't clear to me but they have me looking forward to the days ahead. I participated in a local "sister march" associated with the third Women's March this past Saturday and found positive signs for the future there too.
