Unless I decide to buy some flowers, for the next couple of months my Monday vases are not going to be be vases at all. This week my container is a box filled with items collected mostly from my garden. A few are souvenirs from various outings.
This little plastic box (above and directly below) has the contents listed on a pre-printed grid inside the lid. I would be hard pressed to identify some of these seeds and pods without this chart. I'm glad I took the time to make these notes, brief as they are, when I knew what everything was and where I found it.
