Monday comes around quickly again and its time to join Cathy’s meme ‘In a vase on Monday’ in which we pick flowers from our own gardens to fill a vase. Thank you Cathy for hosting this inspiring meme.
I didn’t know what I would put in today’s vase until I actually walked around the garden this morning. I thought that there might be some lilies to pick but only those in the garden are flowering; those in pots allocated for picking have buds but no flowers, maybe next week.
I picked Knautia, Gerbera and a couple of small secondary sunflowers from the cuttings garden but these weren’t enough to make a vase therefor the garden was raided to supply Nepeta, Achillea, Teucrium hyrcanicum, a couple of spikes of Salvia ‘Indigo Spires’ and as I felt some soft yellow was needed 4 stems of Sisyrinchium striatum.
The flowers I picked suggested to me they should not look too arranged once they were in the vase, but of course, to look like that, I did need to spend some time playing around with the arrangement! To me it gives the impression of flowers in the garden jostling for their position.
Do visit Cathy at Rambling in the garden to see what others have put into their vases today.
