Cathy at https://ramblinginthegarden.wordpress.com will be hosting a group of vases for Monday. Today I have got my act into gear and managed to pick a few of the newly emerging flowers to join in. I seem to have a number of shades of orange in the garden so I decided to use the old marmalade pot. The shot above includes the very strong orange from Sparaxis elegans
The tulips are beginning to go over so to enjoy them I have picked the wonderfully dark ‘Queen of the Night’, and added the common but certainly not vulgar Aquilegias. There is also a few dark purples from the Geranium phaeum and Astrantia. The Astrantia ‘Rubra’ may be a smaller flowered than some of the astrantias and not as dark as ‘Hadspen Blood’ but I like it and know that it will flower pretty much until October.
Have a good week.
