In a Vase on Monday: Sun Hats and Dragons….

Hello! It is Monday again and I am joining Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for her weekly meme. And this week I actually have a prop. 😃

I must admit this sun hat is rarely used, as it is a bit floppy, with a baseball cap being preferred. 😉 But you may be asking ‘Why Sun Hat?’ Well, Echinacea are known as ‘Sonnenhut’ in German… sun hats. 😃

The ones featured today are the earliest to flower and I am still waiting for a few others to open.

Pink Double Delight on the left, Pica Bella, Baby Swan White and one Echinacea pallida in the middle.

Pink Double Delight is rather fancy, but I like it for being a bit eccentric.😉

The dragons are my snapdragons, all grown from a packet of mixed seeds.

But actually there is quite a menagerie in there… lime green Wolf’s Milk (Euphorbia) at the base as a filler, and one sprig of Sedum which is known as fat chickens here (Fette Henne)… just below Pica Bella in the next photo.

The day promises to be warm but not too warm… great for visiting a garden. 😃 My friend and I are looking forward to a visit to the Himalaya Park nearby this afternoon, which I have mentioned before and will write about again soon.

Hope you have a lovely day too. ☀️
