Today’s ‘little black vase’, made by the British firm Wedgwood, was inherited from my mother, Mary. She would often have it filled with home grown flowers in her entrance hall, so I thought I keep up the tradition.
This week’s vase has Gladiolus byzantinus, (which I picked as they had been knocked over by the recent wind and rain) and Red Valerian, Centranthus rubra, which is growing like a weed at the moment, (indeed some would call it a weed!) Sadly the flash has bleached the colour in the ‘vase’ shots, but hopefully this close up gives you an idea of true intensity of colour.
With thanks again to Rambling in the Garden for hosting this meme – and getting me out in the rain to pick flowers!
