I have know what I wanted to use for my contribution to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden‘s weekly challenge to find flowers from our own gardens to put in a vase to enjoy in our homes.
In fact every year at this time I bring our my silver vase and cut Philadelphus and Rosa ‘Queen of Sweden’ as they are the perfect combination; I carried on around the garden picking other flowers that I thought would work well together however when I began adding them all to the vase – it was a mess, so I took out all the extras replacing only the first flower from the White Campanular percifolia that I grew and planted out in the cut flower bed last year (I’ve just added a lot more plants as this years seedlings grew on much better so next year there should be quite a large patch to pick from) and a couple of the pale pink Antirrhinums.
I put together another couple of vases plus I already had a vase in the kitchen stuffed with Sweetpeas.
I must apologise for the quality of the images today; my husband has been using the camera for bird watching and I haven’t managed to reset all the controls properly; the truth is the camera is really too complicated for me and I don’t find it easy to set it as I would like.
Do visit Cathy our host to see her vase and others from around the globe, or better still go and pick something yourself and join us in the very addictive meme.
