In a Vase on Monday – It’s Hot! Hot! Hot!

image

Following on from last week’s In a Vase on Monday I have used another mug from the kitchen cupboard.  In the past few posts I’ve found a container and then picked the flowers.  This time I knew I wanted to use the last of the hot flowers in the garden.  Once I had my selection I searched for the best way to display and compliment them and found this cheerful mug at the back of the mug cupboard.

The crocosmia is almost over but I was able to retrieve a few sprigs with flowers at the top of stems.

The Calendula is also slowly coming to an end, and sadly it is falling foul of mildew.  Now is the time for the nasturtiums to start taking over the flowerbed and is winding its way around every thing at the moment!

For a little bit of greenery I have used Cosmos leaves.

Here is my list of my Hot! Hot! Hot! In a Vase on Monday:

  • nasturtiums
  • calendula
  •  crocosmia
  • cosmos leaves

Thank you Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for hosting this meme, which ensures I do regularly pick flowers from the garden to enjoy indoors.

  1. That mug is perfect for your hot blooms I have done the same with crocosmia for a friend’s posy today – and the flower stems look nice once the fadedflowers are removed too. I have unplanned nasturtiums crawling through a border but wiil plan it into the scheme of things next year! Thanks for sharing Ronnie 🙂
