In a vase on Monday – Pat’s back!

IMG_4054

Suddenly the garden has awoken, and even some of the roses are joining the party.

One of my absolute favourites – Rosa ‘Pat Austin’ – had a number of blousy blooms, which I just couldn’t resist.IMG_4055

To these I added two Geums (no I can’t explain why I need two orange Geums, don’t judge me!)

The first is ‘Totally Tangerine’ which I added to the Bronze Bed last year.  It really is the colour of a Jaffa orange and therefore a bit harsh for Pat, also situated in the same bed.IMG_4056

The second one is ‘Mai Tai,’ a softer, peachier orange and therefore a much better companion for Pat but, illogically, is situated in a pot on the other side of the garden!  At least I’ve been able to bring them together in a vase.IMG_4057

To all this orange, I added a bit of lime in the form of Euphorbia Polychroma.IMG_4054a

It really was lovely cutting and plonking a few zingy blooms in the sunshine.  Thanks for hosting this lovely meme Cathy!

Why don’t you pop over to Cathy’s blog to see what others have chosen for their vases today?

    What a zingy vase, I agree Pat is wonderful. Geums come in such a glorious range of colours, Totally Tangerine is definitely on the wish list.
