‘Blooming lovely’ in a vase on Monday

Each week, gardeners share their best blooms ‘in a vase on Monday’ with Cathy at Rambling in the garden. My contribution this week, and also today’s bouquet #69, is called ‘Blooming lovely’ and features roses, acanthus, hebe, salvia, honeysuckle, nemisia, and yellow stonecrop sedum.

It’s in a brass trumpet shaped vase that I picked up at the Frome flea market last week.

The roses are of an unknown variety from a well established climber. These beautiful flowers were right at the top, requiring a step-ladder and long loppers, but very much worth the stretch!

If you have a moment to pick a few flowers this Monday it’s a great way to start the week! And pop over to Cathy’s blog to see what’s on show this week.

  1. Is it a continuous flowering rose? It’s certainly a good strong pink, as Susie says – and I like the way the hint of pink in the acanthus links to the other blooms. Having a vase with a splayed neck like this is very useful although I have few this shape. Thanks for sharing. Were you at the market at the w/e? If so, how did it go?


    1. I don’t know if it will continually flower, it’s rather tangled in the pear tree and hard to tell what it’s up to! I also like a trumpet shape vase, it tends to lead the flowers into a fan shape. 😊
