Two vases this week, both made last Thursday evening in honour of the mother-in-law’s visit. The first, above, in the second outing of the new vase, was made for her bedroom and has been a little tweaked this morning to add some fresh sweet peas and roses.
It consists of this lovely geranium (which doesn’t last long in the garden, but has actually done well in the vase). I haven’t got any G ‘Rozanne’ but perhaps I should, as I understand she flowers for a long time. Any thoughts on how well she does as a cut flower?
The second one is definitely fading so no close ups!
This one has the lovely peony ‘Sarah Bernhardt’ together with non flowering spikes of Euphorbia characias Wulfenii and pink sweet peas, but the real success here is the Diascia personata. I just love the dusky pink colour and it’s survived really well bearing in mind this one’s been in a hot kitchen for four days. I think you might be seeing more of this!
With thanks to Cathy who host this lovely meme. And I’m not even going to talk about the news this week, but instead concentrate on the flaaars.
