With the abundance of flowers available in my garden right now, it is hard to stop at creating just one vase, so today, I’ll showcase three. All too soon, my gardens will be knocked down by frost, so I’m relishing them while the parade of blooms lasts.
The first features pink Phlox (P. paniculata), Zinnias (Z. elegans ‘Cactus’ and ‘Swirls’) and pink and white Spider Flowers (Cleome hassleriana). A few stems of purple Mealycup Sage (Salvia farinacea) and white Flowering Tobacco (Nicotiana alata) complete it.Moving on to yellow and orange, this vase features two different sunflowers (Helianthus annuus ‘Ivory Queen’ and a birdseed volunteer), yellow and orange Cosmos (C. sulphureus), orange Zinnia ‘Cactus’ and purple Angelonia angustifolia for accent.
Lastly, a small antique crackle vase filled with Cosmos sulphureus. I find their sunny faces so cheering.
