In a vase on Monday – same but different


Chuffed with my little glass vase from last week (not least because pickings are somewhat slimmer and shorter at this time of year) I’ve produced a similar arrangement today – even re-using the Phlomis which was still in perfect condition.

The Nasturtium (Caribbean Crush) had self seeded in the Bronze Bed,IMG_3721

whilst the dark Osteospermum ‘Serenity Rose Magic’, is still flowering away in the metal tub. I did take some cuttings a couple of weeks ago but it looks like only one has taken, so I really should try more before it’s too late.  The lighter Osteospermum, seen in the top photo is also from the Bronze Bed, but it’s a bit of a mystery as to how it got there and what it is!

To top it off I added some blooms from an Echeveria.  Can’t say I’ve ever thought to cut them before, but they’re doing fine so far and I think add rather funky ‘spidery’ accents.IMG_3723

All in all, a rather perky arrangement for mid November!IMG_3718

Why don’t you pop over to Cathy’s Blog to see what others have found for their vases on this, the 4 year anniversary?

    Very pretty. I love the colours of this arrangement, it does not look a bit November- like. My nasturtiums are brown mush so your balmy island climate must be kinder than ours.

    Perky – and colourful too! Just the right words. I think the echeveria is a bit of an inspired touch as well – and you’ve arrranged the phlomis foliage so perfectly to soften it all. Well done! (I’m a bit ashamed of mine now!)

    Definitely nothing that says November here! That osteospermum is so striking and what a good accessory the echiveria is, making for a very successful little vase
