In a Vase on Monday: Evening Posy

Monday is the day Cathy at Rambling in the Garden invites us to join her in putting flowers from our gardens (or near vicinity) in a vase. After a long absence I am pleased to join her and all the other Monday vase creators this week. A very hot and dry summer, coupled with long absences from my garden, made vases almost impossible this summer. But the cooler nights and shorter days – as well as a good rain last week – have worked wonders.

On the way back from the evening dog walk I picked a few wild flowers from the edge of the pathway near our garden. When I got home, one man and his dog needed feeding, so dinner took priority, but my Man of Many Talents kindly took over the photography before the evening sunshine disappeared below the trees.

I think he did a pretty good job, don’t you?

Pink and white clover, tiny harebells, Scabiosa, fleabane, autumn hawkbit/dandelion and Linaria.

Hope you are getting some of this lovely September sunshine this week!

  1. I love the iridescent vase, Cathy, and the pretty selection of soft-coloured wildflowers is just right for it. Thanks for sharing it with us, and thank the photographer for photographing it!

  2. It’s wonderful to see you’re back, Cathy. And how accommodating your Man of Many Talents is! If mine offered to photograph one of my vases I’d probably be calling for an emergency medical check.

  3. I’m in love with that vase, Cathy! It’s very special! So nice to have you back and giving us a peek at what’s growing in your garden. So beautiful, once again. πŸ™‚

  4. Oh it’s good to see a post from you Cathy. Glad to hear that you are enjoying fresher cooler days and some rain too. What a beautiful vase both in terms of shape and colour. You’ve found the perfect flowers to occupy it and a perfect photographer too πŸ™‚

  5. Glad to have found you, or I guess you found me. Your vase is sweet and lovely. I never feel I have much to chose from this time of year, but with a little imagination, I always seem to come up with some combination that is pleasing to the eye. It is always fun to see what everyone is creating.

  6. Cathy your wild flowers are beautiful and wonderful. The vase is very special, it seems to be born. They make a divine couple. Your man is a good photographer, thank him. Cathy forgives for not writing before but I’ve been very bad with my hip and my leg and not wanting to take the laptop. Have a happy week. Greetings from Margarita.

      • Thanks Cathy for your concern but I’m used to it. The days of Autumn are wonderful in the country house: it has rained for half an hour and now a sun has risen that invites you to sit in the garden to drink it at a temperature of 20ΒΊC and to watch the sun go down until the sunset and See the wonderful colors that form in the sky. I hope you Cathy can enjoy the days of Autumn with your man. Have a happy week. Take care. Greetings from Margarita.

    • Oh, thanks Joanna! Yes, I am in love with wild flowers too. It was a struggle for them this summer with the dry weather, but a few managed to come back in September. πŸ™‚

    • Hi Sheryl. So glad it brightened your day! It brightened mine too, as I look back at this vase on a grey November day. Hope you have a lovely weekend too! πŸ™‚
