Cathy, of Rambling in the Garden, has been inspired by Christina, of My Hesperides Garden this week and is celebrating blogging friendship with a vase full of beautiful white flowers from her garden – which in turn has inspired my vase.
This little white jug has Tiarella Sky Rocket, a self seeded white lavender, saxifrage and erigeron.
The props are some crocheted daisies ready to adorn a blanket for Miss E. I started this way back in April last year, doing the many squares for the border has halted the process, but it is her birthday coming up and I really want to finish the blanket in time.
Here it is without a border
and here is the border in progress with daisies arranged by Miss E
40 squares and 12 daisies and so many ends to sew in!
I am also creating a pattern for the blanket so that if I ever did want to make one again (?!) I will have the instructions to hand. This will be available as a free pattern for anyone else who would like to give it a go.
White flowers are my favourite and despite the heavy rain this morning I managed to find some in the garden for another vase
In the vase on the left there is feverfew, astrantia, and a perennial white wallflower with a gorgeous scent, especially at dusk.
The vases are sitting amongst the pot plants: a white orchid,
and Streptocarpus Myfanwy
Do pop on over to see Cathy’s vase and all the others that come pouring in from all over the world always lifting a Monday with beauty.
Also joining in with Cee’s Flower of the Day.
Update: Some photos of the plant which I think is a perennial white wallflower
Am I right?
