Cathy at Rambling in the Garden is our host, she asks us to find flowers in our garden to put in a vase to enjoy in our homes each week.
This morning I knew I would pick Blue Larkspur, if I keep picking I am hoping it will continue to produce new flowers for a while, I love the intense blue and as these are self seeded plants I like that there are actually a mix of blues and some flowers are doubles.
I used the smaller of the rectangular vases with two florists pins positioned to help support the stems. In an ideal world I would have put a ribbon around the vase to hide the mechanics but there was no time as I had to take the car to the garage for a computer update.
I was able to salvage some flowers from my Easter Monday vase; the Alliums that have been in the vase all week have faded to pale lilac but the ones picked today are much deeper in colour.
I also have a very small bunch of early flowering Sweet Peas in a vase in the kitchen; they are lovely but I probably wouldn’t grow them again.
Do visit Cathy to see some lovely vases today, or perhaps you can find a few flowers yourself and join in this very additive meme.
