In a Vase on Monday: Fizz, Fluff and Froth

Earlier in the week I picked all the pink Larkspur in the Moon Bed in the hope that any seedlings next year will be just blue or white. Well, the Larkspur looked lovely alone in its vase, but it would look even better if I added some frothy white Queen Anne’s Lace I thought.

As usual, one thing led to another and I found some wild Achillea milleflorum that had a pink tinge to it. Then I saw my pink Gypsophila was in flower. And a white Cosmos ‘Fizzy White’ looked pretty. And I just had to cut a couple of those gorgeous outlandish pink fluffy spikes from the Sanguisorba.

And so my vase evolved and I must say I rather like all that fizz, froth and fluff!

Why not join Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for this lovely Monday meme. πŸ˜ƒ

  1. Gosh, that’s lovely – what a glorious shade of pink the delphinium is and not at all what I expected. I think you said yours were in a mix but I might seek out some this shade. Pink gypsophila sounds lovely too, and the sanguisorba is gorgeous! I would love to be admiring this vase in my own house, Cathy 😊

    • Thank you for your lovely comment Cathy! Yes, that sanguisorba is amazing. A bit weird but very wonderful! πŸ˜‰ The pink Gypsophila was a revelation… I planted it two years ago not expecting it to survive our winter, but it gets bigger and stronger from year to year. πŸ˜ƒ

  2. Cathy your vase is magnificent, sparkling and with a divine pink and white color, I love it. I love all the flowers but especially the pink gypsophila is lovely, pink larkspur is divine, sanguisorba is spectacular – I love them. Cathy is a vase that makes me smile for its wonderful combination of flowers and its great beauty. Thank you for the beauty of your vase. Take care. Happy gardening! Very affectionate greetings from Margarita πŸ˜˜πŸ˜€

  3. I don’t think I’ve seen a solid pink larkspur here. It looks fabulous with its pink and white companions. I adore that Sanguisorba, one of the many plants on the long list of things I’d love to grow but can’t.

    • Thanks Annette. The larkspur was in my Magic Garden Seeds advent calendar and has been so lovely in all shades of pink and blue. (And one white too). πŸ˜ƒ

  4. Daucus carota was new to me last year, and I was delighted that it re-seeded and showed up again this year. I love your arrangement, Cathy. The pinks are such a soft and sweetly cheerful color. πŸ™‚
