It’s Monday and, once again, time to link up to Cathy at
Rambling in the Garden
and her popular meme, “In a Vase on Monday.”

Today I chose some beautiful Viburnum carlesii, Hellebore foetidus, Hellebore silver lace, and a petite white Jonquil.

This is our new (planted just a year ago) Okemo cherry tree. It seems happy!
