A very ‘sherberty’ arrangement for the Bank Holiday (and the visit of the Mother in Law).
Like Cathy this week, I used chicken wire as the blooms were so heavy I couldn’t get them to ‘wedge’ in such an open vase, but also like Cathy, I noted that it was none too forgiving when you wanted to rearrange! However, I’ll definitely forgive it, as I don’t want to use oasis, and even if I did, I couldn’t in a glass vase!
The blooms were arranged on Friday and already by the time I took this picture the ‘St Swithun’ rose (in the centre) was looking a little droopy, and a couple of the Zinnias a little crusty.
Zinnias generally last really well in a vase, and the majority of these ‘Benary Giant Limes’ will be looking good for days, together with the gorgeous rose, ‘Jubilee Celebration’. I think perhaps the crusty one’s stem had simply missed the water – oops!
Wishing you all a fabulous Bank Holiday – with or without bon bons!
With thanks to Cathy who hosts all our Monday vases.
