My peonies (Paeonia lactiflora) have come out in full force this past week and I have been enjoying them inside and out. Every time I walk by, I bury my nose in their soft petals and inhale deeply. Pure heaven!
To keep these lovelies company in this week’s vase, I’ve added racemes of silver speedwell (Veronica spicata var. incana) and common sage (Salvia officinalis).
Lady’s mantle (Alchemilla mollis) has also begun to bloom. I love that it has such a long season and I use it a lot as a filler flower. Its chartreuse blossoms go well with just about any flower combination.
The vase is a frosted pink glass one that I use quite a bit and has become a favorite of mine to use with pink and white arrangements.
Thanks to Cathy at Rambling In the Garden, who hosts a weekly meme to showcase what is blooming in our gardens. Wander over to see what gardeners all over the world are arranging this week.
