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.
I’m linking to Cathy’s In A Vase on Monday post at Rambling in the Garden. Click to see what vases other gardeners the world over have created from their gardens this week.
I’m not surprised you couldn’t stop at one, I was trying to pick a favourite and I couldn’t do it!
Thank you, Andrea. One must make hay while the sun shines. 😉
Ooh, how did I miss these lovies?!!! They just brightened my morning for sure. Thanks!
Thank you, glad to know that! 🙂
Beauties! Your first image looking from above is especially nice!
These are great ~ beautiful pictures and leaves me wanting summer to hang on for a few more months! With the leaves soon to appear with the coming autumn, which to be honest is my favorite time of the year, but this post does make me feel the ease and warmth of summer 🙂
Thank you for your visit, Randall. Yes, I’m having a hard time letting summer go, as always. I love the ease of it so much, not to mention garden time, hanging with the bees, butterflies and hummingbirds.
Such warm colors!
Wow, such beautiful arrangements. Stunning.
Thank you very much, Kathy!
