In a Vase on Monday: A Thousand and One

This is my 1001st post! So to celebrate I have made a vase guaranteed to produce a smile or two.

😀 😀

It is full of summery loveliness from my garden, and was actually inspired by this vase which I made at the end of last week to use some of the poor anemones battered by rain and wind…

The Anemones don’t last long in a vase though, so I tried to recreate the look yesterday and took it a bit further. I included:

Japanese Anemones; Perovskia; a grass that may be an early flowering Miscanthus; pink, red and white Cosmos; Golden Rod; yellow Achillea; purple Linaria; Stipa gigantea; Heuchera flowers.

This is the grand August finale, as I won’t be here next Monday and the week after that will be September already. Can you believe how quickly summer has flown by?

Now go and visit our lovely host, Cathy at Rambling in the Garden, with her gorgeous Dahlias and links to many other beautiful and inspiring vases from around the world!
