I am home after an amazing three weeks travelling in the US; I have to admit that I’m quite tired and would enjoy a few days total rest after travelling so much, I must be getting old! It is lovely to be home and joining with Cathy at Rambling in the garden to share a vase of flowers picked early this morning from the garden.
I returned to a huge amount of blooms in the cutting-flower beds; my instructions to those caring for the garden while I was away to pick EVERYTHING possible was followed so that new blooms are continuing to be produced. It was so hard to choose what to pick today so I decided to pick one colour range – orange!
The sunflowers are growing very well and there is a good selection of colours and forms. I plonked them into a vase I bought some time ago but haven’t yet used.
Why is it that sunflowers are so difficult to place in a vase so that you can see all their faces?
I decide that the sunflowers were best displayed on their own but all the other orange and yellow flowers were mixed together for a smaller vase for the mantle shelf in the sitting room.
Some Cosmos were placed on the shelves in the kitchen.
I’m really looking forward to catching up on blogs that I missed while I was away. I would also like to apologise for not commenting as much as I would have liked but I did enjoy all the posts I managed to read.
Do visit Cathy (thanks for hosting) to see her delightful vase today and see what others have found in their gardens this week; you could always join in yourself too!
