In a Vase on Monday - the remains of the summer

O vază făcută dimineața devreme,  să mai prind ceva din vara care se duce cu fiecare oră. I-am zis  ”rămășițele verii” și am pus câte un fir din ce mai e în floare în grădină și ne-a bucurat toată vara: lavandă, trandafir alb, flox, hortensia albă, vreo trei feluri de salvie, valeriană roșie, hosta purple passion, achillea ptarmica și un ochiul boului, să marcheze trecerea la toamnă./ A vase that I have arranged early this morning, to catch more from the summer that is leaving us bits by bits and little by little every single hour. I called it ”The Remains of the Summer” and put in it those flowers that have made us happy in the last three months:lavender, white roses, phlox, white hydrangea, salvia, red valeriana, hosta purple passion, achillea ptarmica and a China aster, to mark the transition to autumn.Have a great week!

  1. Pretty pinks, and I like the peachy colors of the Red Valeriana and the texture they add, they all make a nice colorful arrangement with the white roses. The purple accents spice it up too.

  2. That is really pretty Anca, I'm sorry summer is departing already for you. I'm pleased that the link on Cathy's post worked to reach you today as I've been receiving a message saying your blog had been removed when I tried following links back from your comments on my posts.

  4. A beautiful arrangement, Anca Tirca, to mark the end of summer. I like the mix of blooms you've found in your garden. Like you, I had to pick as many of the lingering blooms as possible before the nip of autumn becomes the cold of winter.
