Although unusually I am not at work today, I still had to pick and arrange my Monday vase quickly and efficiently as The Brazilian and I were intending to go on a long bike ride through the Pentlands in training for our Coast to Coast race next weekend. The ‘Totally Tangerines’ were already picked and in this vase, as I’d cut them for this Instagram photo yesterday. All I had to do was add some cornflower buttons and a charming accompaniment, a cheerful beach hut, in celebration of the sun’s shining most wonderfully outside.
I think cornflowers are my favourite flowers for a vase this year.
In the end, The Brazilian pushed himself too hard at the gym and felt quite sick, so we cancelled the Pentlands trip and that meant I could …. garden instead.
In a Vase on Monday is hosted by the fabulous Cathy at Rambling in the Garden.
