Bloom – arrangement number two

This is the second bunch of blooms I’ve picked from the garden. Sorry the photo’s not very clear.

In the vase are Euphorbia Oblongata and Alchemilla Mollis – my go to perennial foliage stems and the flower is Cetranthus ruber. This grows like wildfire in the right conditions and the bunch I picked is growing happily in the teeny crack between the path and our house. It has rooted itself in no soil at all and I pulled it all up at the end of last summer but it’s back. So I thought I would take advantage of its flowers and have some indoors too.  

The cold and wet weather are keeping my little Bloom seedlings small and weedy and there were some losses to slugs in the last couple of weeks. I’ll be back with an update soon.
