The Echinops ritro are peeping above.
All tall and full. I must just show off my Echinacea in the opposite border.
That was my quick dash round before work just before the sunshine emerged. Now take a visit to words and herbs Cathy and catch up on her view.

Today’s Vase is actually a beer glass and the flowers are a pleasing selection, well pleasing to my eye, apologies if not to your taste. They are from my homegrown patch, which was a large patch of bare soil just a few months ago, onto which I planted a few seeds.
There are Dahlia mignon and Arabian Night, Ammi majus, Verbena bonariensis and the lime green of Bupleurum rotundifolium.
Now pop over to Cathy and take a look at the other Monday vases. They will not disappoint.

Whatever is making you smile today, enjoy it.
Right I am off to paint yet more wood. More about that another day as it is not making me smile.
The crinkle espresso cup/ vase is handmade by Stevenjameswill I have placed a small frog in the base to hold the tiny stems in place.
To these I added Verbena bonariensis, astrantias and persicaria. I do not expect them to last long but today they are brightening my kitchen window while I wash up.
Pop over to Cathy s blog to see some lovely vases today.
At work today these are the sweet peas I have grown for Ali.
