A summer-brood Map butterfly on Sedum ‘Autumn Joy’.
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!
Can you believe it is August already? I know it took Cathy – the host of this meme – by surprise too. What a mixed summer it has been so far.
And here is a mixed bunch of summer. 😉
I always look forward to the day when I can use my sunflower jug and share it here.
Take a look at the slideshow and enjoy!
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. 😃
