In a vase on Monday – Mumbai II


dsc01592Just returned from India and stayed a couple of nights at the Taj Mahal Palace in Mumbai. As is typical of hotels in Asia the floral displays in their reception are outstanding and this was no exception.dsc01593Actually it should be vases on Monday!dsc01591

The following amazing Christmas tree was in the lobby of Mandarin Oriental Hotel Bangkok.

The flower market in Bangkok is huge and certainly a place of sensory overload. They almost seem to sell flowers by weight and the prices are incredible low.16_12_08_4531

No wonder they can achieve such fantastic displays.

Glebe House Garden

The days are very short at the moment which limits the time to spend in the garden. Cutting back herbaceous plants and planting the last few tulip bulbs is the main task.

I have been doing this garden blog for six months now. I hope you have enjoyed reading it and many thanks for all your comments and likes.

Happy Christmas and happy gardening through 2017.
