In a vase on Monday – hot desking!


‘Flowers on a desk’ have been back for a while but they don’t usually appear until Tuesday, as that’s when I head to London, and so haven’t featured much in this year’s IaVoM.  This week, however, conscious that I needed to head up a day early for various meetings, I thought I’d bring some cheer with me in the form of a Monday vase.

I noticed over the weekend that the Dahlia ‘Mystery Fox’ was just the same coral/tomato red as the Sarah Raven Nasturtium ‘Cherry Red’, so I plonked them in a vase, together with nasturtium leaves and some fresh green mint.

All very cheering apart from the dahlia flowers quietly collapsing (see dropped petals to the left of the picture).  Hopefully I won’t be in a similar state on Thursday when I eventually head back across the water!

Why don’t you join Cathy at Rambling in the Garden to see what other summer cheer others have in their vases this week?

    Oh I am so pleased you have still been having vases on your desk, Jen – although what a shame the dahlias began dropping their petals… 😦 Is it very warm in your office? Hope you survuve your extended week!
