In a vase on Monday – Chaos!

IMG_4310

I’ve been back on the island for four days for the first time in weeks, but rather than a chilled weekend enjoying the weather and the seaside, we were invaded!

No, not by any kind of bug, but instead by my daughter’s university choir who were staying with us on their choir ‘tour’.  This comprised giving a recital in the beautiful (and wonderfully acoustic) Quarr Abbey, and otherwise lots of eating, drinking and hanging out in the garden and at the beach.  As you can imagine, it was a little chaotic.  Hopefully the flowers, also chaotic, convey some of the joy of having a houseful of jolly, musical, twenty somethings.

I’m delighted my Dahlia ‘Happy Single Dates’ are back.  Those of you who have read this blog for any time know that they grace plenty of summer vases (as does the other, dark, Dahlia here, ‘La Recoleta’.)IMG_4312

These were joined bysweet peas, Heleniums and Dianthus – the Dianthus were retrieved from last week’s vase.  They really do last brilliantly in a vase and continue to provide their fresh green zing.

So happy Monday, whatever you’re up to.  I expect order will resume chez Duver Diary eventually….IMG_4314 (2)

With thanks to Cathy who hosts all our IaVoMs.

    What a gorgeous centre the helenium has. I have Single Date’s cousin, Happy Single Juliet, which I am really enjoying. It must have been fun hearing your daughter’s choir sing – did they sing for you in the garden too?
