or dark cloisonne vase?
It stayed in this vase in the coolness of the sitting room. The seed pods were picked up last autumn, from the square in Kenilworth where a couple of trees names unknown grow. Update: Cathy asks what they are..and I have researched and can confirm that the beans are from The Golden Honey Locust Tree: Glenditsia triacanthos 'Sunburst'. Next week I shall take and post some pictures of the trees in the square.
and so much choice in blooms from the garden, too....
This week: Hydrangea Vanille Fraise whilst it is white and before the pink tinge starts, the seed heads of Sanguisorba officinalis 'Pink Tanna', and Persicaria Red Dragon. This time I had Red Dragon picked and plunged in a deep bucket on Sunday evening, so Monday morning is was in good condition. When I last used Red Dragon, it had rooted in the vase, and is already potted up and in friends' gardens!
Cathy who hosts this meme, and was the giver of the Persicaria plant, has an interesting theme this week, and has some lovely blooms grown from seed. Do go over and have a look at her offering this week.
