Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share an arrangement using materials collected from our gardens.
Summertime flowers spill into each other throughout the borders.
Passalong dahlias and everlasting sweet peas are particularly lush this year.
Hydrangea quercifolia ‘Ruby Slippers’ has been a star in the garden for several months. Echinacea too are having a good year, encouraged by frequent rain.
Most of the Lamb’s ear (another passalong) has long ago faded, but several fresh flowers are forming.
A few gladioli are flowering here and there. This one is from last season. I planted quite a few new corms but they have not begun to bloom.
Echinacea purpurea (Purple Coneflower)
Hydrangea quercifolia ‘Ruby Slippers’ (Lil’ Ruby dwarf Oakleaf Hydrangea)
Lathyrus latifolius (Perennial or Everlasting sweet pea)
