In a daze on Monday

Picked hastily on a Monday night are sweetpeas, dahlias, buddleia, verbena, and poppy seed heads.

I was in a race with the dying light at about 7pm. (If you were thinking that this photo looks as though it was taken on a bright afternoon, my thanks go to a tripod and Lightroom.)

I was also preoccupied with

  1. finding I had just watered my Canon 10-22mm lens
  2. my plan to tear up the front garden and start again

Which is why none of the flowers are facing the right way.

In a vase on Monday is hosted by Cathy at Rambling in the Garden and I do recommend visiting her page to discover many other Monday arrangers of garden flowers in vases.

  1. You watered the camera? Well. the arrangement and photos are lovely.

  2. A true ‘plonked’ arrangement is perfect – any side of sweet peas and buddleia are lovely and the dahlias are just being shy. 🙂
    I also love the blue heart-shaped reflection of you encapsulated in the center of the vase.

  3. The water didn’t seem to do any damage – beautiful photos! 🙂

  4. What exciting times – watering a lens, digging up the front garden, whatever next?! I have to say that some of my best garden ideas have been devised and executed on a whim….look forward to seeing your Lens Tree and a revamped front garden in due course. In the meantime, thanks for sharing your pretty vase with its perfect selection of complementary blooms in that lovely glazed vase

  5. Sometimes the less over-thought the better- your flowers and photo composition are delightful. Looking forward to seeing what you do with the front garden!

  6. Beautiful palette, flowers seem looking around and chattering!

  7. Love the colour of those dahlias and the colour of the vase. All very pretty. I look forward to seeing what you do with the front garden.

  8. Did the lens grow?
    Joking aside I like your plonked blooms

  9. You have a great eye for color in this arrangement. What beautiful flowers!

  10. Oh no I hope the lens is ok now? A tough lesson about gardening in the dark
