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?
I needed something to block out distracting items in the background – just the thing! a breast cast. This was made when a friend of mine was about to have breast surgery. She gathered a group of her friends together on the eve of the operation for a beautiful informal evening of love, laughter and making breast casts together using Mod Rock. We met later to celebrate the successful surgery and we each painted our breast casts.

(I’ve never noticed the hairy entrance before – oh lawks! there really is something very sexual about flowers – apologies, I’m a Scorpio – I can’t help it, Edwina will understand! See her Whacky Word Wednesday post and entertaining follow up video – word= Concupiscent. Too much??!!! Surely not!)
Thanks as always to Cathy for hosting this fascinating meme. Pop along over to see many more wonderful flowers arranged ‘In A Vase on Monday’.
Update: the yellow flower is Sisyrinchium striatum (thank you Christina.) How am I ever going to remember that!
