In a vase on Monday – A pair of Queens

IMG_6607

The key blooms in today’s vase are Zinnia elegans ‘Queeny Lime Red’ and Rosa ‘Jubilee Celebration’ named by David Austin for the Queen’s Golden Jubilee.  (Cathy would have found a couple of playing cards to add as props to the photo, but I’m sorry, I’m just not that organised!)IMG_6608

There are also a few sweet peas – I think this is ‘Painted Lady’ but a bit confused as I thought ‘Painted Lady’ was more obviously bi-coloured but can’t think it’s anything else I planted this year.  And there are also a few stems of Digitalis ‘Polkadot Pippa’, Sedum ‘Autumn Joy’ and if you look really closely at the top photo, Erysimum ‘Red Jep’IMG_6609

And just because I’m currently a bit obsessed with the little vases, another array up for inspection.  This time Verbascum chaixii ‘Album’ (grown from seed ages ago and still self seeding around) and Sweet pea ‘Mrs Collier.’ IMG_6620

With thanks to Cathy who hosts this meme every week and is this week ‘propping’ with Chinese sampans!
