This morning, I’ve made a vase of Japanese Anemone ‘pretty lady’ with scented roses, hibiscus and penstemon. This is the 89th bouquet cut from the garden since spring, and on sale at FromeBlooms.com.
I’m also sharing this with Cathy’s lovely crowd of flower fans at Rambling in the Garden, where bloggers share pictures of flowers in a vase on Monday.
The hibiscus is on the right hand side of the garden, and on the left we have a few large clumps of Japanese Anemone, ‘Pretty Lady.’
The anemone produces a lot of flowers, but I know some gardeners who really dislike its tendancy to spread. I have removed one large clump of anemone from a border, and may push it back a bit more next year. But I do like it’s cheerful five petal flowers, and the yellow centres are a good match for the yellow rose, which I still haven’t identified for certain.
The vase is an enamelled bronze pot in gold and orange, which picks up some of the bouquet’s colours rather nicely. This was a bit more expensive then I’d usually pay, it cost £4 from the Frome flea market, but I think is worth every penny.
If you’d like to buy some flowers, this bouquet is on sale today at FromeBlooms.com, where I offer fresh bouquets of garden flowers by post for £15.
