Cathy this week has sweetpeas arranged beautifully a little posy. Light and airy, and I look forward to seeing other arrangements from others joining in with Cathy's weekly In a Vase on Monday gathering.
Just how dark red can a rose get?
What a wonderful perfume from just a single stem but with multiple roses. Rose Munstead Wood is here paired with some stems from Phlomis pupurea Matagallo. Its pink flowers are now largely over, but I love the woolly stems and the seed pods along the stem. I chose stems that were growing from low down and had taken on a more twisty form. The flowers have been a favourite of bumblebees.
The Vase is one which belonged to my parents. It was brought back by my father from Japan, when I was very young, as a present for my mother, and it is one of my very favourite vases. Each time I use it it brings back happy memories.
