It’s the height of summer and everything is growing wild and I love it. The bee’s are rolling around in the plants in ecstasy and their happiness is most certainly contagious, you can feel their joyous vibrations as the buzz about the place.
This week in my cut flower vase I wanted to create summer, you know the laid back evenings that are warm and chilled with frills around the hedges……. sorry I meant edges 🙂
So here it is this weeks arrangement
The yellow loosestrife (Lysimachia punctata) on the allotment I have grown to absolutely love. As I walk down the alley to get to the plot you can smell it’s honey nectar, it’s stronger the closer you get and the bees are of plenty in their tiny elements.
The daisies (Leucanthemum maximum) are starting to come through strongly too dancing alongside the loosestrife, it’s amazing how the allotment pallete has gone from blues and oranges to yellows and whites. And the feverfew (Tanacetum parthenium) was a new addition next to the newly built wildlife area.
The good thing about these flowers in an arrangement is that they have a good vase life, lasting anywhere from 7-10 days in clean water with a drop of sugar syrup.
Anyway I’m going to let the flowers do the talking!
Thanks for stopping by!
