Yesterday I photographed the flowers outside, but the wind was up and the bright sun made the photos too contrasty.
Today I tried again in the porch. It was so dark and rainy that the poppies didn’t really open, staying furled up all day.
I thought it would be interesting to look at the flowers which are left from last week. I don’t know much about which flowers last well in a vase or what I need to do in order to make them last, so this is a good chance to learn.
I trimmed the stems and changed the water a couple times last week and it’s fairly cool in the house at the moment. The Rhubarb was the first to go, it only really looked good for a few days. Some of the daffodils, hellebores, and freesias have a few days left, and the leucodendron, flannel flowers, and linaria are still going strong.
Thanks again to Cathy at Rambling in the Gardening for hosting this meme, ‘In a Vase on Monday’.
