I am joining in again with Cathy’s meme at ramblinginthegarden where the challenge is to fill a vase with flowers every Monday . On this dark November day, I really wanted to bring some sunshine into the house with some cheery yellow flowers. The vase is all wrong but I couldn’t find an all white one.
The flowers I used are Mahonia x media ‘Charity’. and Winter Jasmine, Jasminum nudiflorum. The little, starry flowers are from the wonderful Michaelmas Daisy, Symphiotrichum ‘Monte Cassino’. The roses are ‘Iceberg’ and the fragrant Hybid Musk ‘Moonlight. The brown seedheads are from Rudbeckia hirta ‘Prairie Sun’. I also used some seedheads from Stipa gigantea. The foliage is Euonymus fortunei ‘Emerald ‘n’ Gold and I also used a spray of the golden variegated laurel, Aucuba japonica ‘Variegata’.
I thought I would photograph it outside too, where the light is natural. Behind it you can just make out the large clump of the Michaelmas Daisy ‘Monte Cassino’ which I used in the arrangement. It has been in flower for ages.
Why don’t you go over to Cathy and see what other people have put in a vase on Monday. Better still, why don’t you join in?
