These are the two things many of us including me are short of at the moment. I am hoping that today’s vase will conjure up a little of both. Every Monday Cathy from Rambling in the Garden invites us to pop something from our backyard into a vase and share it. Here is my offering to the weather and time gods.
At first glance I thought that not much was flowering in our rather arid garden, but it turns out that I could pull together enough to fill a vase. The centrepiece is our purple Buddleia against a backdrop of a Fatsia japonica leaf. I have added in some spires of orange Crocosmia and purple Nepeta, as well as some geranium and radish flowers. At the front of the vase are my trademark Calendula flanked by Ammi majus.
July is a super busy month for me with two little girls’ birthdays to organise as well as trying to finish off my freelance work before the school holidays begin and buy presents for teachers and attend sports days, so I must dash, but don’t forget to visit the lovely Cathy and her followers for more Monday vases.
