Seed-sown Rudbeckia ‘Prairie Glow’ is joined in today’s vase by Anthemis tinctora ‘Kelwayi’, Helianthus ‘Lemon Queen’, a couple of struggling stems of Calendula ‘Orange Prince’ and an infiltrator, an unidentifiable bright orange crocosmia which has no label because I thought I had removed all of it.
Sadly, the photographs of today’s vase of daisies do not really do them justice – in real life they are far more vibrant and pick out the bright coloured bands of the lighthouse-shaped vase, bought from a local pottery in the Scilly Isles when we visited a couple of years back. The prop is another daisy, sunflower ‘Italian White’, which has performed very poorly this year, especially when compared to its queenly neighbour.
I may be a little late responding to comments this week, but don’t let that deter you from posting your own vase. Late summer is still providing plenty of picking material here and I look forward to seeing what you can find in your own gardens: just leave the usual links so we can share in the pleasure your Monday vase brings you.
