In a Vase on Monday

With so much happening the garden, it’s inevitable that there’s lots going on in my vases too. Most of the time they’re all full…

I accidentally cut off a bloom, so of course it had to go in a vase.

Not one of the best arrangements, I think in this case it was just throw it all together and hope it’s OK. I also tend to add to them over time and I suspect this later evolved into one of the vases below.

One of my favourite arrangements yet has to be the Geum and Campanula

Finally, I cut one of the Lupin blooms as it was beginning to go over and accidentally cut the smaller one too. Unwilling to cut a third bloom from the plant, I decided to make use of the plentiful Campanula (as also seen in the background).
I have to laugh at the ridiculousness of such a tall bloom in such a small and dainty little milk bottle. Yes it did fall over. A lot.

  1. I’m laughing with sympathy about the lupine falling over – once I filled a decent-sized glass vase with very tall delphiniums and knocked the whole thing over. Ugh, what a big mess. Lovely airy vases you have there. I’m thinking of adding a few more Totally Tangerine geums to my back garden – I need to have larger clusters of plants to create the right scale for my big beds. Love that plant.

  2. They are all lovely Liz – and isn’t it good creating a vase from our accidents? It makes them worthwhile…. 🙂 Wouldn’t you like to link to the meme by leaving a link on my blog after you post? Not to worry if you don’t ps I have found somewhere I can buy the milk bottle holder and bottles that you have…
