Our heatwave finally broke today and to celebrate I was inspired to create an arrangement. Blue Lacecap Hydrangea (H. macrophylla) is looking great right now, and along with a couple of my dwindling Azure Alliums (A. caeruleum), were my blue choices for the cobalt vase.
Contrasting yellow Daylily buds, which will open tomorrow (Hemerocallis ‘Happy Returns’), golden Sundrops (Oenothera fruticosa) and Black-eyed Susans (Rudbeckia hirta) are accented with wild Daisy Fleabane (Erigeron annuus) and some Poppy seed pods (Papaver somniferum).
Now that the weather has become more pleasant, I look forward to spending the next few days in the garden. Enjoy your weekend!
