In a Vase on Monday – Daisies


I have been very remiss in participating in recent months in Cathy’s Monday meme – In a Vase on Monday. Life has been so busy at work and at home that it was one thing too many.  Anyway, the various things that have been challenging seem to be moving in a positive direction towards a resolution and I have felt the weights that have weighed me down lifting.  Today, I start two weeks annual leave so I thought I would celebrate by joining in again with the meme.


As I have said before when posting on this meme I have no preconceptions that I have any flower arranging abilities beyond the picking and plonking in a vase.  I wanted to showcase the echinaceas and rudbeckias growing in the garden.  Sadly on going to cut the rudbeckias I realised that my lack of time in the garden recently meant that all the annual rudbeckias were growing horizontally and then curving upwards which makes flower arranging, even of the plonking kind, a but of a challenge.  Anyway, I have done my best and I have also included a couple of zinnias although I think they are a little lost and would probably have been better in a zinnia only combo.

So that’s my vase this week and I am going to try very hard to keep up with the meme now.

For other vases on this sunny Monday pop over to Cathy’s

  1. Sometimes the flowers can just stand up for themselves without any ‘artistry’, your blooms are lovely. Enjoy your holiday.

  2. I totally agree with what the others have said – these blooms all speak for themselves, especially your lovely echinacea. My rudbeckia seem to be performing in the same way as yours but not having grown them before I don’t know if that is the norm! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  3. Very pretty! I love the mahogany eyes on the rudbeckia. One of these years, I’m actually going to get around to growing some! Enjoy your vacation!

  4. What a nice way to celebrate the beginning of your holiday leave. I love the colors of the Echinacea – the flowers look good enough to eat.

  5. How good of you to share your vase given that it is the beginning of your holiday. Those ‘daisies’ as you call them are a delight.

  6. My first thought was – ‘how cheerful and sunny’! And they are sitting on your bench! hint hint!
