My vase this week contains some late summer perennials which are looking good in the garden at the moment. I have to admit to being a little mean when I cut flowers in the garden. I really hate diminishing the display and many of my plants are to young to produce lots of blooms.
This week’s bunch contains some perennial Rudbeckia which arrived in the garden, possibly via bird seed. One of the pale pinky red echinacea, a larger flowered Aster whose name is long-lost (I much ask Helen Picton which it is), two types of Crocosmia – one of which could well be ‘Sunglow’, an unknown Persicaria, Salvia ‘Phyllis Fancy’ and some Thalictrum – probably delavayi. It seems the lesson to learn here is I need to keep better notes of what is what!
There is nothing to tell you about the vase as I am sure I have used it before for this post. It is one I bought in my early teens when on holiday in Venice and I have used it ever since. It is the perfect vase with a narrow neck which flares at the top thus keeping the stems together but allowing the flowers to spread out.
So this are the colours of my garden at the beginning of September. For more vases pop over the Cathy’s at Rambling in the Garden
