Well this is a quick post (as End of Month View beckons) to see what happened to them.
The first vase (top) is obviously sunflowers, but also a couple of stems of Nicandra physalodes, the shoo-fly plant, which is growing about 6ft tall in a corner of the cutting garden, not planted by me. It has fascinating black/green bells which ultimately open to purple.
Below, Cosmos Double Click Snow Puff and Purity, together with the stalwart Salvia Horminum ‘Oxford Blue’ and lastly some Molucella laevis, all of a sudden quite tall – so proud 😉
Next, a mad mug of blooms to take to London tomorrow, more Salvias, this time together with Antirrhinum Liberty Classic Crimson (which survived from last year), Zinnias, Cosmos and Dianthus Green Trick.
And finally, yet another little peachy number, this time for the spare room where my mother in law has been staying for the weekend with Sedum and Dianthus (both left over from last week’s vase), Zinnias and Antirrhinums. I think this ones my favourite, which one’s yours?
And whilst certainly not the finest arrangements, it’s been such fun to have so many blooms to play with!
Why don’t you go and see what others have found for their Monday vases at Rambling in the Garden with Cathy?
