This morning the reality of the coming dark and foggy months meant I nearly didn’t go out and pick any flowers for a Monday vase. A cold and wet weekend has certainly put an end to any October glory… But Cathy’s In a Vase on Monday meme once again provided me with the motivation to try and find materials from my garden to bring indoors. Thanks Cathy!
So glad I made the effort after all!
Physalis alkekengi is collapsing now but the seedheads will light up the south-west rockery for a few weeks to come.
Then there was Golden Euonymus fortunei, Heuchera, Lavender, Sedum, Hypericum…
… Crocosmia leaves, Miscanthus, Verbena bonariensis, Persicaria, Teucrium hircanicum…
… Centranthus ruber, and Dichromena latifolia (White Top Star Sedge).
As you can see, getting a decent photo in poor light will be just as challenging as finding the plant material over the next few months!
Take a look at Cathy’s post at Rambling in the Garden, where she shares her vase for this week and links to many other lovely Monday vases.
