In a Vase on Monday: Midsummer Melange

This Monday I am again joining Cathy at Rambling in the Garden, with a mix of pretty pastels and gold for the Summer Solstice.

Vase22nd2

Alchemilla mollis, Aquilegia ‘Yellow Star’ and Hypericum provide the golden tones, and the pastels are Sweet Williams, Linaria, Lychnis, Allium, Verbena, Lavender, Campanula and Geranium. The white flower is a single wild Aster which appeared on the compost heap again. 🙂

I wonder if anyone can identify my Verbena… it has seeded around since last year and is looking lovely outside:

The golden Aquilegia is flowering well and is clearly a much later sort than the others, which have all gone over now.

I’m keeping it brief this week as I have a guest from England – my sister is visiting! 🙂

Do take a look at Cathy’s post with the other contributors linking in there.

And have a great week!
