I really wanted to join in again today as I missed last week as we were on holiday in Cornwall, but after watching the (very rainy) weather forecast yesterday evening I decided to go out into the garden there and then to pick whatever was flowering. Once again no arranging or staging but I’m pleased with the result photographed at 10 to eight on a Sunday evening in mid May.
In the green pottery jug (this shape really helps novices) I have white aquilegia (which grows well in the dry shade under my weeping pear tree), geranium sylvatica alba, geranium maccrorhizum in pink and white, geranium Kashmir white (this last bought from Margery Fish’s garden at East Lambrook Manor about 20 years ago), potentilla, syringa microphylla, and lastly foliage from pachysandra and red acer. The scent from two small sprays of lilac is divine.
Thank you Cathy for starting up this meme. As you can see from my effort anyone can join in, no special skills required either in growing or arranging or photographing, and we all get to enjoy our vases at home for a few days at least.
Hop over to Cathy’s blog, rambling in the garden, for lots more lovely Monday vases.
