My brain has gone fuzzy, it must be the heat! At least I hope so, it could be that I have so many plants in my head and I know where they all are in the garden, but I have to look up my list to come up with the names.
Mr S keeps telling me to come into the house, he is worried about my blood pressure, says he needs me for as long as possible. So to put his mind at rest, I took my BP and for the first time it is reading normal: Proof that gardening is good for me!!!!
I even forgot to use the poppies I had cup down and kept for arranging.
Todays Vase is full of material from the front garden where many of heat tolerant plants are happy to bask in the sun, without any watering.
Wild Marjoram, it is quite prolific alone lanes in the Mendips, and this one just came up in the front lawn, before that was removed, the majoram was saved!
Scabiosa columbaria subsp. ochroleuca, those are the creamy white flowers, but their seed heads are exquisite as well.
Achillea Millefolium Lilac Beauty
Seed heads of Phlomis fruticosa Bourgaei
Lavender flowers variety unknown
The bundle of pale twigs are sea scoured and sun bleached roots and stems picked on the beach, and three stones from the same coastline.
