The watering can is an indication of what I have had to do in the garden: watering, due to the lack of rain. With a new garden, and plants yet to grown sufficient roots, hot sun, drying winds etc, watering is a plant saver.
As I went round the garden this morning, the curly edged wood sage: Teucrium scorodonia 'Crispum Marginatum' was looking pristine. Close by one of the clumps of Centaurea Montana Alba and the purple leaved sage cried out to be selected. Finally some leaves from a purple leaved heuchera helped to bring a rather light and dark arrangement together.
Looking forward to admiring some of the wonderful arrangements at the Malvern Spring Show on my special day out later in the week.
Having been over to view Cathy's IVOM today...her arrangement is by far a lighter and more pastelley affair.
