And here is another vase! I really enjoyed IAVOM last week and appreciated all your kind comments! :)
I was thinking of doing something a little more sophisicated this week, but apperently that's just not my thing, because this is what I ended up with! This is another one that you have to view from different angles to see everything that's in it...
One of my Apricot Beauty foxgloves sent up another flower stalk after I cut back the old one, but it was very short, so I decided it could be better enjoyed in a vase.
And who can resist a David Austin rose? I just love all his roses. This Crocus Rose is the only one I have right now, but if it survives the winter, I will definitely be adding more to my garden! It has a delicious light tea fragrance.
And then there is 'The Fairy'. No fragrance whatsoever, and rather thorny, but the flowers are so charming!
Mollie Rilestone sweet peas...they are supposed to be cream with pink edges, but instead mine are pure white! Hmmm, what did I do wrong?
Malope...this is a lovely plant, but sadly, has become rare.
And some smaller love-lies-bleeding tassles. When I put these in, the whole vase tipped over and dumped most of the water out! This was taken after I refilled it, and explanins why the poor flowers are looking a little bedraggled!
There is a little lemon balm tucked away in there too. It smells nice, but there wasn't enough room for it, really! It is probably my favorite herb.
Hope you all have a wonderful week! Please visit ramblinginthegarden.wordpress.com/2017/08/14/in-a-vase-hello-ruby-monday/ to see what other gardeners around the world have made today!
