This week’s vase for In a Vase on Monday, hosted by Cathy at Rambling in the Garden
The grasses were what caught my eye today; some are silvery, some shimmer like gold when the sun catches them, and when I spied a white Centranthus flower among them the arrangement started to form in my mind and then in my hands as I walked around the garden.
As I added a few more white Centranthus ruber ‘Alba’ flowers and a sprig of Daisy Fleabane I shaped the bunch of grasses around them, finally placing three white Zinnias at the front.
Do you have any pretty grasses in your garden at the moment?
We had just gathered some hazelnuts from a small tree the squirrels have overlooked, so I have put a few next to the vase as a simple decoration (I usually forget to add a prop!).
It was tempting to add a splash of colour, but the pink centre of one of the zinnias stands out all the more I think without any extra pink…. what do you think?
Now take a look at some of the other vases being created around the world on a Monday for Cathy’s meme at Rambling in the Garden
Have a good week everyone!
