In A Vase On Monday – Mid-September

Eliza Waters

Mid-September and the choices in my garden are growing fewer by the day. Dahlia ‘Lillehammer’ still is putting forth blooms, but like the rest, it loses vigor as summer wanes. Making up the rest of the arrangement are white Flowering Tobacco (Nicotiana alata), pink Zinnias (Z. elegans), the last of the pink phlox (P. paniculata) and cosmos with a handful of Hyacinth Bean (Lablab purpureus) blossoms. Wild Heart-leaved Aster (Symphyotrichum cordifolium) and lime green leaves of Purple Raspberry (Rubus odoratus) are the filler and foliage. Props are a few white pumpkin gourds that once again self-sowed out of the compost, a nice surprise freebie.

I’m joining Cathy at Rambling In the Garden, host of the weekly meme showcasing arrangements created from our gardens. Click the link to see what gardeners all over the world are arranging this week.
