Here is the result of my rescue operation:
The white pot is one I bought in a second hand shop recently. Even though it's a little scratched in some places, I liked the old-style ornaments so much that I *had* to have it. With its round shape, it even fits the lovely matryoshka I received from my mentor a couple of years ago.
What was meant to be a last-minute entry for the Friday-Flowerday at Holunderbluetchen, must have missed the linkup for a minute. Nevertheless I wonder if I'll be able to present some flowers each week of the year?
