Cathy of Rambling in the garden challenges us each Monday to pick flowers from our gardens to place in a vase to enjoy in our homes. It is also a very accurate way of seeing what is flowering well each week as only the most prolific blooms will be picked from the garden or from the beds many of us have decided to dedicate to cut flowers.
As I mentioned before the Aster (sorry, no ID) that I am using again today has grown in the most amazing way this year; having never been much more than 80 cm, this year it is above 1.5 m, it is still covered with flowers and although I have cut many huge stems the plant looks as if it hasn’t had any stems taken at all.
I know the vase needs more height to be better balanced but I am enjoying the profusion of Aster stars anyway.
I picked so many stems, I placed all the unused stems in another vase.
With my thanks to Cathy for hosting this meme. As much as I love having cut flowers in the house, I do sometimes wonder if I would actually have flowers ALL the time without this Monday morning incentive. Have a lovely week everyone.
