I’m joining Cathy at Rambling in the garden for my daily diary today to share a vase of flowers picked from the garden.
Luckily I picked my flowers on Saturday to refresh and arrange for a lunch party yesterday; today is windy, very windy and I’m not sure what damage I will find when I go outside; it could well be there’ll be a second vase with damaged irises, I hope not!
I should have cut my filler a little shorter for better balance in the vase but the stems were all very well wedged in the vase so I didn’t want to have to start again.
The colours of the Antirrhinums and Sweet William tone very well together. These Antirrhinums were, like the white ones I showed a couple of weeks ago, sown in autumn 2014 and planted out in early spring 2015; they over-wintered where they were in the cut flower bed and are giving a good show now.
For my filler I used the flower heads of a plant that is about to be dug up and added to the compost heap, do you recognise it?
Thanks as usual go to Cathy.
