In a vase on Monday – Bon bon Bank Holiday!

IMG_4231

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!IMG_4233

Wishing you all a fabulous Bank Holiday – with or without bon bons!IMG_4236

With thanks to Cathy who hosts all our Monday vases.

    So beautiful, and it really does look good enough to eat! Normally I’m not that fond of green flowers, but yours are perfectly lovely combined with the pink roses!

    Oh definitely sherberty colours – and my goodness! those zinnias are huge! Or perhaps the roses are smaller than I think…! Thanks for sharing, Jen
