I was cajoling various allium into becoming more upright citizens yesterday when I had a little accident, changing the course of my Vase on Monday. Instead of the blooms already in mind, the shortened stem of Allium christophii became the focus of today’s vase, joined simply by a clutch of Astrantia ‘Buckland’ and a froth of thalictrum foliage. I suspect the thalictrum is actually native and persistent meadow rue, accidentally introduced in my ignorance from a friend’s garden. The vase is one of many from my Caithness Glass ‘collection’ and, upright citizen that I am, today’s prop is my passport (now expired).
Bringing blooms or foliage in from the garden to pop into a vase or jamjar brings so much pleasure.
