I returned yesterday evening from a totally inspiring and slightly exhausting weekend at the Tallulah Rose Flower School in Bath (of which more soon) brimming with intent.
Keeping the momentum going, and making the most of having a bit more time to construct something as I’d taken the day off today, I put together this a-symmetrical arrangement of garden gatherings.
It includes many things that I have grown from seed including the Ammi majus, sweet peas, larkspur, cornflowers, nigella, Pennisetum ‘Feathertop’, Zinnia ‘Purple Prince’, Cosmos ‘Double Click Cranberries’ and Cerinthe major ‘Purparescens’.
Also included are dahlias (mostly grown from seed over the last few years apart from the large purple one whose label I seem to have lost), Buddleia ‘Pixie’, Allium sphaerocephalon, the beautiful arching Lysimachia clethroides, foliage from Clematis montana, acer, mint and spirea.
The container is a rose bowl I bought this morning from a charity shop for just this purpose.
In a Vase on Monday is hosted by Cathy at Rambling in the Garden and is a challenge for gardeners everywhere to cut and show what’s growing for them now.
