What to put in a vase for Cathy at Rambling in the Garden‘s weekly challenge to find something in the garden to put in a vase to enjoy indoors?
Last week I saw that there were quite a few Zinnias and I thought another little celebration of them would be a nice idea as surely they wouldn’t survive another week; but when I went to pick them their blooms were tatty and not worth cutting so I will be removing them from the the cuttings bed this week. But as I have mentioned several times already they have been flowering constantly since the first week in June so very good value for a cheap packet of seeds.
I wasn’t sure what else I could find; although there were dots of colour around nothing was in good enough condition to be worthy of a vase. Except Leonotis leonurus; in fact this is growing better now than at any time during the summer, plus there is now sufficient material to take some more cuttings, some have already struck so I will make space for a few plants in next year’s cuttings beds.
I put the vase (actually a woven pot with a plastic interior) on the kitchen mantle shelf where I can enjoy them.
