In a vase on Monday

As you all have probably gathered, I’m not too hot on the flowering arranging (lack of patience, mainly). But I do love the flowers and the photos (and the blogging friends involved in this meme).

I was out in the garden this afternoon and happened to notice that ‘Crown Princess Margareta’ had more flowers than ever before – so I had to pick. Such a pretty rose. Hope it doesn’t get the black spot it’s had in previous years.

Naturally the photos followed on, because I do think of you all, although I rarely take part these days. Pale orange and blue are probably my favourite colour combination.

And the nigellas have just started flowering. (Something that loves this garden! Hurrah!)

I still haven’t found a decent technique or vase for arranging the shorter stemmed roses – I need to pay more attention to what the rest of you are doing!

My little Chinesey duck is because it might rain – and Cathy at Rambling in the Garden does love our little ‘props’. Now go on over and see every one else’s vases and have a lovely week!
