After deciding not to blog, read posts or comments during the month of July, I am back today to join Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for the popular In a vase on Monday meme. Thank you to those of you who emailed to check if I was alright; your kind thoughts were much appreciated. I am back now in My Hesperides Garden although I have to admit that with the very high temperatures the garden is not giving me very much pleasure at the moment. If it were not for the cut flower beds I think I would just want to go away until September and (hopefully) the autumn rains.Today’s vases were actually made last week when we returned from a short trip to the Cilento in Southern Italy.
In life the large Dahlia is more orange than it appears above but it does have a pink tone shining through the orange.
I don’t expect to post very often during August but I do hope to read and comment again on the blogs I follow. Thanks to Cathy for being such a good hostess of this meme and a very caring friend who noticed immediately when I failed to post at the beginning of the month.
