Here's what's included:
- Alstroemeria, pink (noID)
- Freesia, yellow
- Gaillardia aristata 'Gallo Peach'
- Grevillea 'Superb'
- Pelargonium x hortorum 'Mrs. Pollock'
- Xylosma congestum
|The deep yellow Freesia are blooming like gangbusters and sweetly scent the room when included in a vase|
|The Gaillardia would probably outshine the competition if their stems were longer (and the Freesia hadn't partially hidden them)|
|Even if the Grevillea isn't quite as bright as some of the other blooms, the bloom has a more complex and interesting form|
|The Pelargonium's foliage is attractive on its own|
|But the Pelargonium also produces an almost florescent orange flower (I usually remove the flowers but I couldn't bring myself to do so this time)|
|New Xylosma foliage, cut from the hedge that surrounds our home, is the most demure element in today's vase|
Which flower do you think steals the show in today's vase? The vase landed in the front entry. Last week's orchid vase still sits on the dining room table, looking little different than it did last week.
|The Leptospermum and Coleonema in last week's vase have deteriorated somewhat but not the Cymbidiums!|
Visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden to see what she's put in a vase this week and to find links to the creations of other participating gardeners.
