In a Vase on Monday: Still Summer?

Well, after another very cold night (3°C) I can definitely answer the question in my title: summer is over!

But looking at this vase of Cosmos picked yesterday you wouldn’t think it. 😃

It is vases like these that make me so glad I can join Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for her Monday meme and share the prettiness with you all.

We have finally had some real rainfall and what with the misty mornings and cool nights the Cosmos are looking a bit bedraggled and are sadly going over. But these were salvaged along with some Verbena bonariensis and the last stem of an Everlasting Flower, all picked from the Oval Bed.

It looks like today could be slightly warmer, so I will be making the most of a dry day outdoors and hope you can do the same sometime this week.

Happy gardening!
