There is not much in the way of flowers now, but there are still a few white asters (‘Ashvi’), glowing in the Moon Bed. They are even visible in thick morning fog and at dusk too. They are very welcome, as we have only had very brief glimpses of the sun and just a hint of the full moon last week. They were therefore the obvious choice for today’s vase, as I join Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for her lovely Monday meme. 😃
Another obvious choice for me was the tall Iris sibirica and Allium millenium seedheads, which add a ghostly effect.
And the smaller grey seedheads are from the Pycnanthemum, which I grew for the first time in both the Herb and Moon Beds. I am very pleased at how they last. The last seedhead of a Scabiosa perfecta was also saved from some tidying up yesterday.
I then found an intact Echinacea seedhead (most of them have disintegrated or been eaten by the birds), a sprig of Calamagrostis and a couple of late Scabiosa ochroleuca flowers. All in all, along with my ‘moon’ vase as I call it, this little collection brightens a dismal drizzly day.
Thanks to Cathy for hosting. I am especially looking forward to seeing some flowers from warmer climes later today when I visit her blog and see what everyone else has found to share in their vases from around the world.
Have a great week!
