In a Vase on Monday – A little bit of this and a little bit of that

I didn’t want to miss making a vase this week and joining the ‘in a vase on Monday’ meme, but as I arrived home last evening, when it was already dark I no time to pick anything then.  This morning I was quite surprised but what I found to pick for my small blue vase.

Without Cathy at Rambling in the garden I might have forgone the vase for this week, but I’m glad I didn’t.

A couple of stems of Anthiriunum

A couple of stems of Antirrhinum

The Antirrhinum are the ones sown last autumn and planted out in late winter, the plants are still growing strong even after producing masses of flowers earlier in the summer.  I will leave them in the ground as they may produce some early flowers for spring.

I’m sure you’ve already visited Cathy but if you haven’t do visit to see the wide variety of vases from yesterday.

  1. The pennisetum is definitely the star – and how exciting to have your late bloomers as well! Is that a zinnia as well? Let’s enjoy them all while we can 🙂 Thanks for ensuring you joined in when you got back – I hope all went well in the UK and your flight was OK

    • Yes, you’re right there are a few Zinnias as well! The Pennisetum are the stars in the garden too, some are from the arrangement of weeks ago! Flights were all on time, which is all you can hope for really.

  2. Oh my goodness Christina, you have so much in flower and your vase looks quite summery, the Cosmos has long gone here although my neighbour has self sown Antirrhinums coming up along her gravel drive and some are flowering in our mild December.

  3. Such pretty flowers, they don’t look like a December garden at all. I plan to start some Antirrhinum seeds for next year, I hope they do well, and also some Sweet William. I’m happy to see yours, and such a cute little blue vase.

  4. Gorgeous! The flower colors are a great complement to the blue vase. You are a talented floral designer, in and out of the garden!
