Putting that rant aside, my vases this week are a study in contrasts. The first invokes the feeling of summer's fiery heat.
|Dahlia 'Punkin Spice' sets the tone|
|The zinnias blooming in increasing numbers bring up the rear (view)|
|Top view, featuring the first feathery blooms of Pennisetum 'Rubrum'|
While my garden is dominated by hot colors at the moment, there are blooms in icy colors too and I collected some of those for a second vase.
|A late blooming spike of Delphinium got things rolling|
|Cool-colored lisianthus (Eustoma grandiflorum) fit the scheme|
For more Monday vases, visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden.
