a monday un-vase

Our illustrious leader, Cathy, celebrated the anniversary of her beloved ‘In a Vase on Monday’ meme with a challenge: use something that is not exactly a vase. Well, I’ve been derelict in my posting lately but could hardly pass up such an opportunity. Froggy usually holds a pencil or two or just sits around being uselessly decorative.

I wanted to keep it simple so that the impression would be of him shooting out his long tongue to capture supper. Thus a single stem of Chasmanthium latifolium, the red leaves of Nandina and a dried wand of Persicaria.

When you visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden you will need to backtrack a few posts to see all of the inventive solutions by her huge and growing cadre of devotees. If you choose to do so, it will be well worth your time.

  1. Very cute! You just reminded me that I have a green metal frog somewhere that once held my business cards. (Are business cards even used anymore, or do people simply tap their phones to transfer information?)

  2. Oh rickii, your frog is lovely and what a wonderful un-vase to have for IAVOM – I am so pleased you decided to share it with us even though we are a couple of weeks past the anniversary date. It would have been a shame for you and Froggy not to have joined in at all and we would have been poorer for not meeting him. It was great having all the non-vases and almost everyone entered into the spirit of the idea

  3. I’ve been having trouble posting on non-wordpress sites recently. Finally resolved (or found a work-around) so I’m back to say this was a cute idea. That frog has a particularly winsome personality.
