This meany left me with barely enough energy to hoist the remote control as the dogs and I lay on the couch, drifting in and out of sleep all day.
Fortunately, there are lots of blooms in the garden to put in a vase. Unfortunately, rain poured down most of the day and I considered taking pictures of a silk arrangement already in place instead.
This Rhododendron 'President Roosavelt' had bent down to the ground very near my back door and looked as beat as I felt. (This variety is gorgeous with variegated foliage and bi colored blooms but are also known for leaning and being a bit weak.)
One quick dash outside was about it for me. The rhododendron was placed in an Helium mug, a gift of my niece.
If you don't know Strindberg and Helium, here are some uplifting videos:
The flu bug and rhododendron were joined by facial tissue, sleepytime tea, and a thermometer. Not the most flower-filled Monday Vase but certainly the fastest to assemble. Didn't want to miss out on the addictive In A Vase On Monday meme hosted by the talented and creative Cathy at Rambling in the Garden.
