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