Bloom 2017 – A Little Catch Up


Time is flying. I have some flower arrangements to share from before we went away. Thought I better post them before winter sets in…….

I picked a great big bucket of everything that was pickable just before we set off. I gave a bunch to my Mum and arranged the rest. I deliberately cut back in the hopes that something would still be blooming out in the garden when we got back.

This vase is filled with Calendula, Helianthus, Salvia, Centaurea and Oregano flowers.


Love all those happy sunflowers so much. There are a couple of varieties here, Vanilla Ice and Taiyo. Need to remember to plant more next year!

Next we have the same vessel, slightly different flowers.

Cosmos, Antirrhinum and Nicotiana are combined with the Salvia (pink and blue) and Oregano again.

As a little experiment I added Calendula because I felt the arrangement was a bit flat.

Zing! Much better.

I’m even trying out that whole lopsided arranging again…….. Still not sold on it so must keep trying!

    Both bunches are so very pretty. Nothing like fresh flowers to perk up a desk or table. Your garden has been SO generous this year.

      Thanks. That packing them in planting seems to work better than spacing them as the packet suggests….. I’ll try it again next year.
