I just had to share this with you, Clary sage and Dianthus.
I love the colour contrast especially against the grey table top.
I love the shredded paper like quality to the white petals of the carnation.
Seen today at Darsham Nurseries, Suffolk. D.
It is always interesting to visit someone else’s garden don’t you think? This garden is delightful, loose, free, the epitome, if you like of a cottage garden. Consequently todays vase is the same.
There is an unknown variety of a pink rose and five different hardy geraniums. They are pink ones, white and purples. There are perennial sweet peas in soft pink and a dark pink lychnis. There is Alchemilla and the wild flower known as fox and cubs.
Dark claret buttons of Knautia Macedonica repeat the strength of colour from the lychnis.
The garden planting scheme was created by designer Laura Arison.
The jug is a complimentary green colour is stamped “Mersey” on the base and most likely will have been one of the owners finds. The colour repeats the poppy seed head colour. Pleasing.
Joining Monday Cathy with this vase.
Have a lovely Monday and thanks for reading. D.
These are tiny short stemmed snips today as I try to preserve stems for my first NGS visitors next week.
Rose Gertrude Jekyll
Rose GJ hanging about at head height so I catch her heavenly rose scent.
A small pot of colour thanks to Geum Totally Tangerine, Astrantia major and Astrantia Shaggy and chartreuse froth courtesy of Alchemilla mollis.
Short and sweet. Get thee over to Monday Cathy to see other vases of flowers picked from gardens all over the place and not just the UK. Should you fancy joining in, all you have to do is pick some flowers, insert them in a vessel, photograph and tell us about it, adding a link back to Cathy mentioned above.
Have a good week. D.
