Every Monday Cathy at Rambling in the Garden invites fellow bloggers to join her by sharing a vase of flowers etc from our gardens. So here I am again, wondering what happened to last week. Time flies at this time of year!
I reused a few things from last week’s vase… the Allium was still looking lovely, the chives and a spiky Heuchera flower too. But the rest is new and a bit un-thought-out. But I like it!
The lupin in the middle is one of the many I now have that set themselves from a single plant added two years ago. Blue lupins grow at the roadsides here, usually accompanied by masses of yellow broom. Sadly a lot of the broom died in 2020 – the third drought year in a row. But there is hope as there are many smaller plants doing well. The lupins, however, seem completely unaffected by drought!
The Siberian Iris was so welcome… this is the first time it has flowered for me after being planted in the then new Butterfly Bed in October 2018.
A sprig of silvery Artemisia found its way into the vase too. I am constantly pulling this out! More Alchemilla, some Salvia and some Borage were also added.
Oh yes, and a white Polygonum flower was plonked in there too. A bit of a mishmash. But a pleasing one!
Do have a look at Cathy’s post and the other vases linked in to it.
And have a lovely week!
