In a Vase on Monday: Orange Passion

Orange Passion: that’s the name of this gorgeous Echinacea…


And after counting 13 flowers/buds, I decided to take the plunge and cut one!

Dodging the raindrops, I could also collect a few other bits and bobs too…

(Yes, we had some rain at last!)


I mixed in some Goat’s Beard, Heuchera foliage, a few sprigs of Lavender and some Willowherb (Epilobium angustifolium)…


Thanks to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for hosting the In a Vase on Monday meme, where we are challenged to fill a vase with flowers from our gardens. It’s so enjoyable. Why not join in?!


By the way, I wanted to update fellow vase-on-Monday bloggers/flower arrangers on the Centranthus (Red Valerian) I used here two weeks ago. It looked lovely for three days, then lost a few petals but still looked good on day five, so definitely one to use again.

Have a nice Monday!
