Today’s vase is in-your-face bright and cheerful, ‘cos we are celebrating the birth of our first grandchild. Born at the weekend, she’s a healthy weight, with a shock of thick, dark hair, eyes wide open and a ready smile. Sadly, we can’t visit for a while, but in the meantime we’ve broken out the bubbly, clinked glasses … and we now have an exuberant vase as well!
I am joining Cathy (@ramblinginthegarden) for her weekly celebration of our floral treasures, presented on Monday, in a vase (or something that functions in that capacity).
My colourful components are:
Heliopsis helianthoides ‘Summer Nights’
With the vase brought indoors, I am enjoying the way the dark wiry stems of the heliopsis and verbena shoot randomly outwards, making the whole thing look like exploding fireworks, with fizzes of colour at the tips.
See, even today’s rain can’t put a dampener on things, there’s too much to be thankful for.
Have a good week!
