I had every intention to join in with Cathy at Rambling in the Garden, and her meme “In a vase on Monday”, but what with work and other commitments, I couldn’t get it together in time.
With time to spare today, I went ahead with my next arrangement for my Cuttings Calender challenge (to have a continuous display of flowers or cuttings from the garden for a year). My “crate” of geraniums were going over, and needed to be replaced.
I was desperate to use some of my cherished roses. I struggle to destroy the garden display by picking them for a vase, but “Albertine” is now very floriferous, and wouldn’t miss a few blooms.
I wanted to arrange them among a “lemon/lime froth”, and for this I used some Angelica seed heads, along with some buds of Hydrangea “Annabelle”. They are proving to create a wonderful combo, in the border, alongside Rose “Gertrude Jekyll”, so I thought it might work in a vase. Alchemilla mollis provided the bulk of the “froth”, and other pinpoints of pink were provided by Astrantia “Roma”.
I have had so much inspiration from Cathy’s meme, and feel I’m starting to be more adventurous. I’m so chuffed with this result that I wanted to show it anyway – better late than never!
