A Week of Flowers Day Five, 26th November 2020

Blogging friend Cathy of Words and Herbs needed something to cheer herself up and, guessing that others might be feeling the same, suggested that from Sunday the 22nd through to Saturday the 28th of November we shared one or more photos a day of earlier seasons in our gardens to brighten up what could be a dreary time.

Moving into June, this ‘Bright Eyes’ Monday vase started with a seed sown dahlia and Clematis ‘Ville de Lyon’, joined by Calendula ‘Snow Princess’ and ‘Indian Prince’, Cosmos ‘Popsocks’, Limonium ‘Purple Attraction’ (statice), Centaurea ‘Black Ball’ (cornflower), Antirrhinum ‘Liberty Classic Rose’ and, to fill in some gaps, side shoots from a delphinium. A stem of meadow rue (wild thalictrum) provided a hint of foliage.

    Each and every flower is lovely Cathy. The dahlia is a gorgeous colour and the Antirrhinums are such a nice addition to a vase. 😃

    Pretty and cheerful! I’ve grown fond of calendula over the years, esp. the newer cultivars. I love those full-petalled, lemony ones.

    Growing from seed is not only so satisfying but most rewarding too isn’t Cathy? 😄

  5. Cathy is a wonderful vase and I love all the flowers, especially marigolds, dahlia, cosmos and antirrihinums. All the flowers are lovely. Take care. Very affectionate greetings from Margarita.
