I am joining in Cathy’s meme today with my vase. Do take a look at ramblinginthegarden.wordpress.com to see other vases.
It may be pouring but I have a little bit of the outside with me inside, thanks to these stems of Solomon’s seal. One of my favourite Spring time flowers for its fresh green leaves which unfurl to reveal green tipped white flowers. Each stem arches over to at least a meter in length and creates a great centre piece to my table.
The weather may stop any opportunity for work in the garden today. No matter, enjoy the day!
A fascinating plant. Someone gave me one recently and I am glad to see from your arrangement how well it can work indoors. susie
Hi Susie, thanks. it’s so nice to receive a gift especially when it is a plant. I hope it grows well for you. D.
It’ s wet today too and for the rest of the week I think.
I love your Solomon’s Seal in a vase. I never thought of picking it. It’ s so elegant, and no sawfly damage. Do you pick off the grubs or haven’ t they found your plants?
Thanks! Yep wet week ahead.
If you look carefully you will notice some leaves are missing. They were munched. It is one of the reasons I picked them, before they were shredded. Last year they were devastated so this year I have been more vigilant. Sadly I cannot say the same for my Sum and substance hosta. Totally munched. Grr
Sorry to be late visiting, but thank you for joining in. Great minds (?) think alike for using the polygonatum, although yours looks much better as it was probably superfluous in mine. It’s great to try different things for a vase, isn’t it – and mine still looks just as fresh today. Yours is very much taller though, so perhaps a different variety – I love how they emerge from nowhere after the winter. No sawfly yet…
Great minds indeed! The polygonatum lasts for at least 8 days in a vase. (No direct sunlight). They are really interesting the way they poke through and then uncurl. Mine are growing in a North facing spot in good soil and I suspect they are so tall reaching for the light. Glad you’re sawfly free. D.
Only sawfly free SO FAR!! 🙂
