Ten Years of Words and Herbs!

I just got a notification from wordpress that it is my blog’s anniversary today, and realised it was ten years ago that I took the first tentative steps into the blogging world.

And I have enjoyed every minute!

Thank you for reading, commenting, liking and following. I appreciate all the positive vibes I get from you all!

In a Vase on Sunday: A Happy Bunch

 A mixed bunch of sunny flowers and grasses seemed just right today, as I try and hang on to summer and bring lots of summery and late summer flowers indoors. And it turned out to be such a happy vaseful of sunshine that I decided to dedicate it to all those who don’t have any sunshine or flowers today, and also to my friend Elisabeth, whose old doggie crossed the rainbow bridge to doggie heaven recently. I hope this will brighten her day too.

The sunflowers and Tithonia are still producing flowers, despite chilly nights. The Asters have started showing their shiny faces and sparkle in the morning dew. We have rosehips galore (as well as loads of other berries, which may feature in another vase soon). All my Miscanthus are now in full swing, and a few late Larkspur, Cosmos, Geraniums, Scabiosa and Knautia also made it into the vase. And see that blue sky again? 😃😃😃

Thanks as always to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden who hosts this meme.

Wishing you all a sunny week!

In a Vase on Monday: September Sparkle

September is proving to be a fabulous month so far, with temperatures in the lower 20s, sunshine and blue skies, and a light breeze every now and then. I think October is still my favourite month, with all the autumn colour and golden light, but September comes a very close second. The light is softer and the humidity is low. The house martins are still here at least for the first week or two, and there are still so many flowers blooming.

My vase today celebrates that special light and the soft sparkle of flowers, foliage and grasses.

Cosmos, Scabiosa, Miscanthus, Asters and lots more. I am being lazy with names today. 😉 As always, a big thank you to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden who hosts this wonderful meme. 🤗

Have a lovely week, and happy gardening!
