First thing after the washing up was done, I went out to pick a few stems to put in my vase. As quickly as I could get my camera out the Knot Weed: Persicaria Red Dragon was wilting, hence the Knot Wilting part of the title! This is my Cathy Plant, so maybe Cathy or someone else will offer tips on how to condition Persicaria. Cathy is hosting this meme and has posted a hot vase this week, so do go and see hers too!
The first of my white phlox, stems of Penstemon Heavenly Blue, seed heads of nigella, sedum spectabile, and dark maroon clematis Valuceau, and again Comtesse de Bouchard and keeping cool are fresh whilst the Red Dragon wilts.
My nasturtiums are doing really well at the moment, but did not feel the bright orange and yellow flowers would quite go in this vase, but I love the form of the seed heads, so added some, as they are a similar green to the tones on the knotweed leaves and the sedum.
Hubby and I have a lovely day at Tatton Park on Saturday. With the theme of flowers and vases, and using locally grown flowers I would love to share some pictures from The Flowers from the Farm Shed. The shed was designed to be used by a bride as a haven for planning her big day....
