We had been invited to dinner on Thursday evening so early in the morning I picked all the flowers that were blooming to make a bouquet for my friend and fill some vases for the weekend. There were more flowers than I had realised so that I ended up with four vases.
Joining with Cathy at Rambling in the garden is always one of the nicest things about Monday but it isn’t always the best day for me to pick and arrange flowers, so again this week I’m sharing vases put together for a different day; they are, though, all blooms from the garden as the rules of ‘In a vase on Monday’ dictate.
I didn’t sow any Cosmos seeds this year but a few seedlings grew up in suitable places anyway so the colour scheme for my friend’s vase was based around them. Pink is a colour she likes, fortunately so a vase with pink cosmos, Dahlias, Zinnias and Chinese Chrysanthemums combined with the soft blue of Perovskia as a filler was a much appreciated gift.

I wonder what you have used in your vase this week; will there be spring bulbs from the Southern Hemisphere? What will Cathy have chosen and what props will she find? Do visit Cathy to find the answers to all these questions.
Have a good week.
