Well no, not really, just trying to come up with an eye catching title, not my strong point really. Cathy is always so clever with her titles and as I am joining her for ‘In a vase on Monday’ where she asks us to make an arrangement with material from our own gardens, I needed to make some effort think of something at least vaguely fun!
After finding some videos on You Tube that I included in answer to Susie in last week’s post, I wanted to try again to make a hand tied bouquet. Again I’ve used mostly daisy shaped flowers including Gerbera, Single mixed Dahlias with the addition of Achillea and orange Leonotis leonurus, which is flowering like I’ve never seen before, I must try some cuttings as a plant of this would be great in the cuttings bed.
I used the brown glazed vase of Etruscan design that you’ve seen before.
I followed the instruction but somehow my posy is not flat by pyramidal! – I’m not sure how that happened but I like the finished result, it just wouldn’t pass any test on this type of arrangement which appears to have quite strict rules – I’m not good with rules!
Do visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden to see what others have found to put in their vases this week
