Monday is the day to share flowers we have picked from our own gardens with Cathy at Rambling in the Garden.
My first vase was created on Saturday to enjoy at the weekend, the additions was added this morning.
The cut flower beds are now producing a lot of flowers, I will have to make two or three vases this week or better still I’ll pick some bunches to give to friends.
As my regular readers will know I love white flowers and today all the flowers are white but as my title suggests white comes in many tints and hues when the name is applied to flowers.
I used the large rectangular vase again with a single stem of R. ‘Sally Holmes’ in a separate vase.
(I made a lovely pot of tea from the leaves I removed from the Lemon Verbena)
The Gaura has quite pink stems but the flowers are white; they drop their petals very quickly in a vase so their effect is fleeting but they do add some airy texture.
This is the pure white form, it has been a battle this year to keep the lily beetles from completely decimating the lilies.
I was given a small plant of the green carnation by a friend you had used part of a stem from a cut bouquet as a cutting. It is planted in one of the cut flower beds and is producing a lot of flowers, sadly they have no perfume.
Visit Cathy to find more vases than you could ever imagine or why not join in yourself, but be warned having flowers from the garden in the house can become an addiction.
Tomorrow I’ll be posting an update on my cut flower beds, if you would like to join in you would be very welcome to leave a link with your comments, no need to link back to me.
Have a lovely week.
