I don’t think I’m actually predisposed to purple prose, either here or more especially at work, but I liked the title and it went with the colour and the positioning next to my computer.
This is not this Monday’s vase, it was actually last Monday’s, but I enjoyed it on my desk last week and missing out on IaVoM makes me sad, so I hope you’ll excuse me if I sometimes post a week in arrears. My desk arrangements seem to be getting bigger as the choice of cutting blooms grows so I’ll soon need to restrain myself to ensure there’s still room for my keyboard!
This vase (mug) consisted of pickings from my satellite cutting garden down the road. The flowers were all grown from seed and planted out back in May. There was Cosmos Double Click Snow Puff (also featured in last week’s vase with the sunflowers),
some lovely purple veined sweet peas (which I have to confess I didn’t plant) and lastly, one of my favourite cutting blooms, Molucella laevis. I just love green flowers, and these ones are magical. Mine are always a bit short compared to the ones you buy in the florist, but as I rarely make huge bunches (much too tricky!) it really doesn’t matter.
Bells of Ireland? Ding dong!
With thanks as ever to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for hosting this lovely meme.
