In A Vase On Monday – Pink and Purple

unusual collection of beautiful flowers…

Eliza Waters

Topped by a starry mandala, gray-green poppy seed pods (Papaver somniferum) vie for attention amid purple larkspur (Consolida ajacis) and lavender Hosta flowers.

Pink racemes of Astilbe taquettii and the first pink phlox (P. paniculata) of the season, along with a couple wild mallow (Malva alcea var. fastigiata) compliment the purples.

White gooseneck loosestrife (Lysimachia clethroides) match the white ironstone milk jug chosen as a vase. A few fronds of Christmas fern (Polystichum acrostichoides) complete the arrangement. The crocheted doily was a handmade gift from my sister.

Thanks to Cathy at Rambling In the Garden, who hosts a weekly meme to showcase arrangements created from our gardens. Wander over to see what gardeners all over the world are arranging this week.
