In A Vase On Monday – Daylilies

IMG_6072For this week’s vase, I’ve used yellow daylilies (Hemerocallis ‘Happy Returns’), white flowering tobacco (Nicotiana alata) and purple ladybells (Adenophora confusa). IMG_6068Daisy fleabane (Erigeron annuus) is used as filler and a few lady’s mantle (Alchemilla mollis) leaves are the green.

IMG_6073One of my favorite vases is this cobalt blue one that complements just about anything I choose to put in it. My mom had a similar one when I was growing up so it carries a bit of nostalgia for me as well. It is set upon a vintage Jean Vier Basque linen napkin.

    Beautiful! Very francais – french country. Love the summery colors. I’ve been pulling out Lady bells because they takeover but I have come to realize I will never be without. They are marching up my driveway and the bees do love them.
