Achillea, Alchemilla mollis, Cosmos, Dahlia mignon.mixed, Dahlias, David Austin Roses, in a vase on Monday, poppy seed heads, Rose The Pilgrim, turquoise milk glass
The heat is building up over the next couple of days and already the dog is flaked out on the cool flagstone floor.
I grabbed a few of the last roses, this one is The Pilgrim from David Austin. A buttery yellow old style rose with a strong rose fragrance I do like it but find that the weight of the blooms cause it to flop over. A chop to shorten the stem ensures the heads are supported by the sides of the glass. To the rose I have added yellow/ lime coloured Alchemilla mollis and Achillea which fades from dark to pale pink.
In a turquoise glass jug I have put the strong pink coloured Cosmos with more of the Alchemilla mollis and Achillea. I have also added the seed heads of a few poppies.
More Alchemilla has been added to the small Dahlia mignon. This overwintered in the cutting bed which I am very pleased about. Finally I have a few of the tiniest Dahlia which I chose because I do love the look of a daisy.
So there you have it folks my vases for Monday. Do take a look at Cathys lovely blog https://ramblinginthegarden.wordpress.com to see some more Monday vases, certainly more cheerful than world news.
