In a vase on Monday – floral fiesta

On Saturday I had the delight of my London Book Club friends coming to the island for lunch and I decided to arrange flowers inspired by the, er, napkins!IMG_1368

As we were eating outside I had to contend with an umbrella in the centre of the table, so I chose to arrange five similarly themed vases to form a circle.  Whilst the colours didn’t exactly ‘go’ I liked the gaiety on what was (unlike Sunday) a rather grey day.

Apart from the sweet peas Lathyrus odoratus ‘Annie B Gilroy’ and Lathyrus odoratus ‘Heathcliff’, there were Dahlia ‘Happy Single Date’IMG_1370

Achillea ‘Terracotta’IMG_1371

Scabiosa atroprupurea ‘Fata Morgana’IMG_1372

and a second dahlia, currently vying with HSD for 2016 favourite – D. Mystery Fox.IMG_1374

And despite the book (my choice!) not being so well liked, I think we all had a time as jolly as the flowers.  I know I did.IMG_1366

With thanks to my book club ladies for making the trip and to Cathy for hosting this lovely meme.
