For the first vase of June, a few of stems from the garden give a calm looking arrangement., with nodding seed heads that quiver showing movement within the room causes eddies of air.
Lamium maculatum 'Beacon Silver' is looking fresh with its silvery leaves and spikes of purple flowers. Remnants of seeds of Love in the Mist have been biding their time in the garden soil and then growing where they will, but judiciously weeded out where they are not wanted, but in the main they wind about the clumps of the beautiful quaking grass Briza maxima
Love in the Mist has returned
Remnants from years past
Blue or pink hued mantels bleached
Or hidden deep in the intervening time
In this regeneration.
Why named the ragged lady?
Devil in the Bush you are not
With your green finely crafted ruff
Sometimes equaled to the Hair of Venus
Your charming beauty beguiles me.
