Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share an arrangement using materials collected from our gardens.
First I am happy to report I graduated from an intensive 3-week long, 200-hour yoga teacher training on Saturday. It was an amazing, exhilarating experience. I have appreciated your good wishes and encouragement the past few weeks and am looking forward to catching up on your blog posts soon.
There has been little time to reconnect with my garden but stepping out to gather items for this week’s vase, I noticed suddenly lantana, buddleia and phlox are in flower along with monarda, echinacea and shasta daisies. From among these I picked Phlox paniculata to share today.
In seeking companions for the phlox, I abandoned my usual restraint, including a mix of whatever flowers said hello as I walked through the borders.
Dahlia, a passalong, possibly ‘Wisconsin Red’
Hydrangea paniculata ‘Jane’ LITTLE LIME
Lathyrus latifolius (Perennial Sweet Pea)
Phlox paniculata ‘Robert Poore’
Salvia guaranitica ‘Black and Blue’
Zantedeschia ‘Orange Blend’ (Calla lily)
