In A Vase On Monday – Summer Gold

IMG_3799The garden is at its zenith and while we have some weeks ahead of us, I’m aware that the bonanza won’t last forever, which only serves to heighten my appreciation.

IMG_3800I cleared my garden paths of the abundant tangle of flopping stems, mostly white flowering tobacco (Nicotiana alata) and yellow/orange calendula (C. officinalis).

A large clump of heartleaf aster (Symphyotrichum cordifolium) also needed trimming, so that became my lacy greens. IMG_3797

Nothing goes to waste if I can find a vase for it (which as you might have guessed, I have plenty)!

IMG_3801The special features this week are tall stems of Ligularia ‘The Rocket’ as well as golden zinnias (Z. elegans ‘County Fair Mix’) and dahlia (D. ‘Tiki Torch’).IMG_3798
