In a Vase on Monday: Simply Yellow

Along with the Alchemilla mollis, the yellow Lysimachia has been so pretty this year I decided to honour it by using it in a vase this Monday, as I join Cathy at Rambling in the Garden.

A few strands of the pretty grass Melica ciliata completed the look.

But my eye was then drawn to a couple of other yellows nearby…

Hypericum polyphyllum, Euphorbia seguieriana and Oenothera missouriensis were then placed in a smaller vase, with some Aruncus dioicus which has just started opening.

The Hypericum (St John’s Wort) is a little early, it usually waits until St John’s Day to flower – the longest day of the year.  Can you believe it is almost midsummer?!

Is anything yellow flowering in your garden right now?

Thanks to Cathy for hosting In a Vase on Monday. She has also found some yellows this week. 😀

Have a great week!

  1. Love all this yellow. Such a cheery color for the beginning of the week. I hope you have a good one too.

  2. Cathy is beautiful the yellow Lysimachia. And the accompaniment of mollis Alchemilla is great. I love Hypericum. All yellow, all precious !!! Have a good week. Greetings from Margarita.

  3. Your lysimachia is so full of blooms, is it a select hybrid? Mine looks rather sparse/wild in comparison. I love the last two photos esp. – the hypericum closeup (what stamens!) and the red rose (?) backdrop.

    • The Lysimachia was here when we came and I assumed it had come in through the back door. 😉 It sometimes gets devoured by little white caterpillars that feed only on Lysimachia, but has escaoed them so far and has really shone this year. Those Hypericum stamens are pretty amazing close up, aren’t they! I’ll have to show off the red rose again soon. Must look up the name, which I never can remember!

  4. A delicate and pretty arrangement. Sometimes it’s good to limit the colours. We seemed to have moved on from yellow somewhat but I do have Phlomis which I think is russeliana and oenethera. A new one which is pale primrose yellow. Oh, and a sea of buttercups.

    • Oh yes, the buttercups are around here too… 😉 I like this little Oenothera as it stays short and flowers well if it gets plenty of warmth.

  5. Gosh, the lysimachia really does look a treat in the vase – and yet a clump of it is neither here nor there! Alchemilla froth is always a great addition to a vase but makes yours today a truly sunny vase 🙂

    • I love yellow and pink together, so am happy with all the Lysimachia at the moment. Loads will have to be uprooted again after flowering though!

  6. Your yellows are luscious, Cathy! I admire gardeners who can use that colour to such good account… 🙂

    • Not sure why that didn’t set the link? (I’m logging on from a new phone; please do pardon my using your post to try connect correctly!)

  7. I gravitate to yellow and orange in my garden, Cathy, so your beautiful vase is very appealing to me. Soon my yellow day-lillies will be blooming, and they always make a statement. I have a number of yellow gazanias, hibiscus and gerbera daisies. I have a few volunteer sunflowers I hope will produce large heads. I have enjoyed viewing your homage to yellow! 🙂

    • 🙂 My daylilies should also be out any day now and the orange flowers are so lovely. I love Gerbera, but rarely see a yellow one… it is often used by florists here. I haven’t grown any sunflowers this year – hope yours do well Debra!
