Today’s vase quite simply celebrates abundance and the best the garden has to offer. Almost all of the blooms in this chunky rectangular glass vase came from the cuttings beds and were picked purely for their gloriousness and without any consideration of colour combination. The joy of being able to pick such a quantity of blooms, such a variety of colour, such a variation in shape and formation is barely describable and the above photo does not really do the end result justice. Holding the posy in my hands before placing it in the vase was a moment of pure joy and contentment with the garden and everything in it.
Within the abundance you may see several dahlias (Jowey Winnie, Glow, Duet, Karma Serena, Happy Halloween, Reggae orange, Happy Single Juliet, unknown large yellow), sunflower Italian White, Inula magnifica, Cosmos Click Cranberry, Larkspur Sublime Deep Blue, Alonsoa Scarlet, Antirrhinum Overture Rose, Amaranthus viridis, Salvia Neon, Cornflower Black Ball, Alstromeria Indian Chief, Daucus carota, Veronica spicata and maybe other things I have forgotten:
Do you have abundance of your own to share In a Vase on Monday, or maybe only slim pickings? Either can bring you pleasure during the week so please do see what you can find to pop in your vase and share it with us by leaving links in the usual way.
