In Jam Jars on Monday

In a Vase on MondayDespite the grey skies and the weeks of battering from wind and rain, there is still a lot of pink in my garden.

The Argyranthemums have formed huge clumps and have been flowering prolifically since May.

The self-seeded Antirrhinums have been a self-perpetuating surprising array of colours.

The red Achillea loves its new position in the new border.

The Kaffir Lilies have survived their many transplants.

The Phygelia stays in a raised bed waiting for a permanent position and seems to love it there, so perhaps it will have to stay where it is.

And my lovely rose, Hot Princess, after a promising Spring flush, sulked all Summer only to burst forth now in early Autumn – so I think she will still be flowering for my birthday, which is particularly apt as she was a birthday gift, last year, from NanaCathy. Thank you Cathy.

  6. Oh, what a happy bunch of flowers! There is such joy in bringing in, arranging and setting out a bouquet from your own garden. I hope you can continue to do so for weeks to come!

  7. All are absolutely lovely. You just had me realizing that I have no Argyranthemums in my garden at the moment. I must remedy that! (Cold and frost aren’t an issue here.)

  8. Jam jars always look so jaunty. I must do some. A beautiful collection of colours. I must also go and look for my kaffir lily, I don’t remember seeing it flower!

  12. Those Argyranthemums have been brilliant for you – I had some in pots this year which did well, although deadheading was a faff. My antirrhinums have done well too, and I wonder whether those in the borders might possibly self-seed ps I can smell the fragrance of the chrysanthemums as I write!

    • How delicious!
      Yes the deadheading is a pain, but worth it I think. The only sadness is that they do not seem to offer any nectar for insects – I have never seen any on them.

    I love a series of jam jars filled with flowers. Your selection of pink blooms is really lovely! Summer is reluctant to leave us thank goodness, despite the amazing autumn colours we have this year! Amanda https://therunningwave.blogspot.com/2019/11/falling-apart-in-vase-on-monday.html

  17. That is a lovely collection…and the jar and post will preserve the variety. Its quite magical how plants mostly survive moving and can even thrive better than before.

  18. They’re beautiful, especially that rose, it’s absolutely gorgeous. And I’m happy to know what the pink flowers are that I’ve been admiring on my dog walks lately, that I’d quite like to grow but didn’t know the name of – Kaffir lilies – so thank you for solving that mystery. Particularly good that they flower at the end of the season.
