We have enjoyed watching the changing seasons whilst we have walked round our lanes, fields and woods during lockdown. In April we enjoyed the bluebells.
And in the hedgerows there are wild roses and honeysuckle.
So my vase today takes its inspiration from our walk. I don’t pick wild flowers of course, but I did pick some wild oats from the verge. The foxgloves, ox -eye daises, poppies, honeysuckle, elder flowers and roses were from my own garden. The ox-eye daisies, Leucanthemum vulgare are pretty, but horribly invasive and I am always grubbing them out.
I don’t have wild honeysuckle in the garden but this gorgeous Lonicera periclymenun ‘Scentsation’ is a particularly fragrant substitute.
And instead of the wild rose I have used a lovely, single rambling rose called ‘Francis. E. Lester’ It is deliciously fragrant too.
Cathy at Rambling in the Garden hosts this meme and this week she seems to be in a celebratory mood, do pop over and see and you will find what other people have found in their June gardens for a vase this week.
