In a Vase on Monday: Summer

I am joining Cathy at Rambling in the Garden again, along with many others from around the world, for her Monday vase meme.

Looking around my garden yesterday I realised there are so many lovely wild things growing (i.e. weeds!) so I have also incorporated a few into my vase.

As you can see, the sun is very bright in July, making it difficult to capture the airy vase as a whole, but at least we have had lower temperatures for several days now before the next wave of heat rolls in tomorrow.

On the left is a small stem of Thalictrum ‘Elin’ – such a beauty – with Perovskia and Fleabane.

In the middle are some grasses (Melica and Sporobolus), a poppy seed head, an Allium and some purple spikes of Teucrium.

The white flower is a wild Queen Ann’s Lace.

I think it really does look like lace, don’t you? One of the nicer common names given to pretty plants. 😉

One stem of Calamagrostis and a wild white flower were added…

And of course, I had to use some of my red Queen Ann’s Lace too! (With some wild Achillea in the background).

Why not visit Cathy now and see the lovely pink arrangement she has posted today.

Have a great week!
