The cut flower beds are producing a lot of blooms but that is a good thing as it is so hot now that even the cut flowers don’t last very long. I picked my flowers early this morning but then was busy trying to complete some tasks outside, make apricot jam, tie in tomatoes, etc, etc, and all before it became to hot. Because I left it so late I had trouble finding somewhere shady to photograph my vase for Cathy at Rambling in the Garden.
I like the uncontrollable wispiness of Salvia horninum
Below isn’t today’s vase but one I arranged for the weekend, many of the flowers are already past their best.
Back to today’s vase; I moved around the garden looking for a suitable shady spot where the colours wouldn’t be bleached by the sun.
I still have more dark Dahlias and Zinnias left in the bucket that I need to find a vase for.
With thanks to Cathy who despite opening her garden yesterday for NGS still had the energy to pick and arrange flowers this morning.
Have a good week.
