In a vase on Monday – bronze cup?

img_1908

Having shared one of the lovely Rosa ‘Jubilee Celebration’ blooms in a Wordless Wednesday earlier in the month, I cut three for today’s vase and there were still some left behind.img_1904

These were joined by more of the rose hips from Rosa Wedding Day (which I used in the golf dinner flowers) as well as a couple of tawny Nasturtiums.img_1905

The final component was the Ceratostigma seed headsimg_1906

Not only does this plant have these funky, whiskery seed heads at this time of year, but it also has fabulous pinky bronze leaves (and for those of you who don’t know the plant, stunning bright blue flowers in late summer).img_1902

Why don’t you go over to Rambling in the Garden to see what Cathy and others have found this week?

    How wonderful to still have roses. I love the rich colours. Haven’t thought of using ceratostigma. I shall dash out tomorrow and look at my seed heads. Thanks for the inspiration

    The Ceratostigma leaves and spent heads proved to be perfect bed fellows for the roses and rose hips – really complementary colours, and again such PERFECT roses!
