In a Vase on Monday: Autumn Blush

There’s a lot of pink in my garden at the moment… this surprises me each autumn but is not at all unwelcome as it goes so nicely with the peachy rusty shades of fading foliage. So these are the colours featuring in my Monday vase this week, as I join Cathy at Rambling in the Garden again for her weekly meme.

I picked the last of these peach roses and one pink one (all no names!), some of the now deep pink Sedum, Scabiosa, the rose ‘Fairy’, Aster ‘Little Carlow’ (I think), Aster ‘Lutetia’, and a little pink Aster given to me by a friend last year, Hypericum berries, Pennisetum, Hakonechloa (now with pink tinges), a Geranium flower and various Cosmos. I chose my blue teapot as a vase – although these are actually Cornflowers on it, they remind me of little blue asters.

Do visit Cathy to see what seasonal delights are being put in vases around the world this Monday.

And have a great week!

  1. What a dear teapot! Love the use of grasses here, and the peachy rose and asters add to the autumnal feel. Let’s celebrate the season before frost ends our garden play. πŸ™‚

  2. The peachy rose is such a pretty shade, Cathy, aand its pink tints work well with the pink blooms you have added. Enjoy your flying visit to the UK and the anniversary celebrations

    • The rose has now faded and elegantly dropped most of its petals. I am hoping the last bud will open. πŸ™‚ I’m here for another week before I fly, so perhaps you could order us some nice weather by then? …. Oh, about 20Β°C and sunshine on the East coast please! πŸ˜‰

      • I would like to oblige but sadly I can’t promise… The drop in temperature overnight is increasingly noticeable but we are still having some sunny periods in the daytime. Forecast to be wet and stormy tonight though

  3. Just returned home from a short trip to a hotter, dryer part of California. Until I returned home I didn’t realize all the voluptuous color in my neighborhood. I guess I took it for granted. Your Monday vase speaks to that wondrous color, fabulous.

    • Hi Deb. It’s the same here if I am away for a while… the hillsides here are wonderful colours at the moment and I just don’t see that in other oarts of the country. πŸ™‚

    • I have to admit I have never used the teapot for cornflowers, but I used it for asters last year too! πŸ˜‰ (And I used it to make tea once, I think!) πŸ˜‰

    • I always get roses up to our first frost, which could be at the end of October but is often much later. Keeping my fingers crossed it will be late this year! πŸ™‚
