Abundance – lots of flowers, lots of bees and other insects, caterpillars, sun and rain. It’s been a wonderful start to summer, mostly sunny but with almost 2 inches of rain in the last week bringing the corn up and another flush of flowers on the peas.
Blue Scabiosa and Penstemon ‘Hidcote Pink’, Salvia guaranitica ‘Blue Enigma’, Scarlet Runner Beans, Geum Borsii, Artemisia, Hollyhocks and Chives are the main ingredients for the pitcher.
The Sweet Peas are Antique Spice. I love the scent although in a vase I think it’s better mixed with Roses.
The Dahlias are Eveline, which are new for me this year and are Strong and tall and covered with flowers. The Rose is Lichfield Angel, still producing flowers one at a time. The little green vase is by Graeme Storm.
Pop over to Rambling in the Garden to see more flowers and vases.
