It’s hot and windy here in my Country Garden in Lancashire so I’m taking photos in the dappled shade of the veranda of my garden studio.
It’s Monday so it must be time for In a Vase on Monday. For a change I’ve chosen mostly white flowers with a hint of pink and some beautiful scented foliage. The white flowers are:
- Sweet Peas
- Ammi majus
For me it’s not just about how the flowers look in the vase… I think all our senses should be involved. For touch and scent I’ve included some easy to grow foliage.
- Peppermint Geranium which has large velvety soft leaves.
- Variegated Applemint which has splashes of cream on the edges of it’s crinkled leaves. Both of them smell minty and delicious.
I’ve also included a few sprigs of Golden Oregano because it’s in flower now. The flowers are tiny but add a welcome touch of colour to my all white bunch. In bud they are deep magenta colour opening to pale pinky-lilac.
My ‘vase’ this week is a little wicker basket with a glass jam jar inside which fits nicely with my country garden theme I think.
In a Vase on Monday is hosted by Cathy at Rambling in the Garden every Monday. I hope you can join in with us.
Thanks for reading and I hope you are enjoying your garden this summer. Gillian 😎
