Cathy at https://ramblinginthegarden.wordpress.com hosts the ‘in a vase on Monday’ meme and this week she has chosen a vase full of white flowers. Her message is about how much she enjoys and is inspired by other blogging friends, do have a read.

I have copied her lead and only picked white flowers today.

Whites here include Astrantia shaggy, and Astrantia major, neither are truely white but close enough. There is a pale pink rose which fades to near white as it opens. I inherited this rose and do not know its name but I do like it for the profusion of petals.

There is a branch of Mock Orange, Philadelphus species unknown. Rather lovely to observe it lacks any scent which is very disappointing. I have added some Cosmos bipinnatus ‘Purity’ a must have annual for my garden.


The vase is clear glass etched white with a pattern of leaves.  A few years old now it is Filigran vase, line by Lin Utzon, manufactured by Rosendahl.  

As it is the first day of Summer and it has poured with rain it is nice to look at fresh whites. Let me know what you think, do you like all white flowers? Brings Wimbledon to my mind.
