Monday gives us the opportunity to share a vase (or two) with Cathy at Rambling in the garden where she asks us to cut flowers from our own gardens or close by to enjoy in our homes.
Only a little drop of rain on one day in the past week with warm temperatures during the day and cooler nights it is my favourite time of year temperature wise. Planting and sowing can begin and it is a moment to savour the blooms that are continuing into autumn.
The vegetable garden was the source of my first vase so I’m sure you will guess what the flowers are!
Last year the Jerusalem artichokes didn’t produce many flowers, I think this was because the tubers hadn’t been harvested and so were completely overcrowded. Early this year the tubers were most dug up and so with more space there is a wonderful display of flowers this year.
A few orange Zinnias add to the rich colour
Do visit Cathy to see what she has found in her garden this week and to find links to vases from all over the world, so spring will be represented too – think tulips!
Have a lovely week.
