Today’s vase is a celebration of my daughter’s homecoming (as well as her 19th birthday in July, which, for the first time, she celebrated without me).
She finished her first year at uni in June, and was then home for less than 24 hours before flying to America to work in a holiday camp and then travel. It’s so lovely to have her home, although the chaos that surrounds her is rather less welcome!
After the gorgeous display of Zinnias at West Dean I’m chuffed to be able to show off a couple of mine. These are both supposed to be Zinnia elegans ‘Luminosa’ as the other one I grew was ‘Queen Red Lime’ which is a lot greener, but is yet to flower.
To these I added the lovely smelling roses Rosa ‘Jacques Cartier,’ (with Euphorbia myrsinites behind)
and the same two white species from last week, Cosmos bipinnatus ‘Fizzy White’
and Ammi visnaga ‘Green Mist’.
With thanks to Cathy who hosts this lovely meme.
