Today’s vase (which is actually very similar in colouring to the last iaVoM I posted) was prompted by an overdue visit to my lovely neighbours’, who allow me a little patch in their walled garden to grow flowers for cutting.
I have to confess I haven’t been for weeks due to a combination of weather, being off the island, and a chest infection, so I wasn’t entirely surprised to see that nearly all the annuals I’d planted out in May had given up. However one, Rudbeckia ‘Cherry Brandy’, was looking better than ever, so that’s where I started.
To all of these I added some of my trusty Tithonias. Sadly, this could be my last cutting of Tithonia, not because they’ve finished flowering, but because they’re grown in the garden behind us, and the empty house the garden belongs to, has now been let. I don’t suppose they will flower for much longer, but I will miss them.
To finish an ‘aerial’ shot, which entailed a certain amount of climbing, showing
- my favourite vase from above
- one lone Calendula, which didn’t appear in any of the close ups and
- I should spend less time fiddling about in the garden and more time polishing my granite work surfaces!
