On Saturday I had the delight of my London Book Club friends coming to the island for lunch and I decided to arrange flowers inspired by the, er, napkins!
As we were eating outside I had to contend with an umbrella in the centre of the table, so I chose to arrange five similarly themed vases to form a circle. Whilst the colours didn’t exactly ‘go’ I liked the gaiety on what was (unlike Sunday) a rather grey day.
Apart from the sweet peas Lathyrus odoratus ‘Annie B Gilroy’ and Lathyrus odoratus ‘Heathcliff’, there were Dahlia ‘Happy Single Date’
Scabiosa atroprupurea ‘Fata Morgana’
and a second dahlia, currently vying with HSD for 2016 favourite – D. Mystery Fox.
And despite the book (my choice!) not being so well liked, I think we all had a time as jolly as the flowers. I know I did.
With thanks to my book club ladies for making the trip and to Cathy for hosting this lovely meme.
