Another sweltering Bank Holiday Monday and this time one rather hot and grumpy mum. I know I should be enjoying the sunshine, but it is close and muggy and the kids are driving me up the wall. So I have crept away for a little “me” time joining in with Cathy from Rambling in the Garden’s In A Vase On Monday meme. And breathe…
In the kilner jar I have some punky pink Gladiolus byzantinus, some sunny yellow Phlomis russelliana, a couple of spires of Nepeta and a fern frond.
This is a funny smelling combination thanks to the catmint and Jerusalem sage, so in front I have placed a trio of sweet smelling blooms from my Rosa Gertrude Jekyll, which is flowering abundantly in its second year in the garden. The little blue and white ‘Clematis’ jug is part of a tea set that used to belong to my Grandma.
Now I am wondering whether to water the garden, or if the weather is going to break in time to do the job for me?
Thanks as ever to Cathy for hosting this meme and providing me with a spot of sanity!
