In A Vase On Monday – Pinks

In A Vase On Monday – Pinks

Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share a vase of cuttings from our gardens.

I had gathered all the dahlias the garden offered up on Sunday but didn’t have time to arrange them. I left them for our flower-loving neighbor to find. During a lull in activities I took a few quick shots of a clutch of dianthus I’d cut as an afterthought. For a bit of cheer and with a nod to host Cathy’s love of props, I staged the flowers with a miniature sugar bowl from our daughter’s childhood tea set.

    The close up really shows what a great contrast the flowers and foliage of the dianthus has – very pretty, and thanks for adding a prop too! Hope you have been busy with good things, Susie

    You know, I dislike pinks in one of the landscapes at work, but would grow just a few at home because they were some of the only annuals I planted when I was a kid, for a neighbor two doors down. One of the many advantages to living in a suburban neighborhood is trying different things that neighbors want in their gardens.
