I love nasturtiums, roses and michealmas daisies, and popped down to the bottom of the garden to pick a few for a vase on Monday.
These flowers are late summer stars for the lazy gardener, they’re all fairly easy to grow and produce a generous quantity of flowers.
The pink roses are from the bottom of the garden, and are very pretty despite a little blackspot on the leaves. Nobody’s perfect.
The yellow nasturtiums are a delight – I love them and so do the bees.
The laurel foliage is from our neighbours hugely overgrown hedge, which may actually be pruned this weekend… Updates may follow. 🙂
The michelmas daisy will hopefully keep flowering until the first frosts. It has a pretty yellow centre, that the yellow nasturtium complements in the vase.
The vase itself was made in Japan, and purchased for £1.50 from a local charity shop. Bargain!
I’m happy with this little collection, and I’ll share with Cathy’s gang of floral fans, ‘In A vase on Monday.’ To see what else has been gathered to start the week, visit Cathy’s blog.

The colours are so vibrant and seem to say…it is still Summer! I have started to use my Nasturtium leaves and flowers in mixed salads…pretty and delicious!
Gosh, your vase was indeed a bargain and a great shape for these favourites of yours – it looks so bright and summery despite it being mid September (really? still hard to believe it is!)
I love the nasturtiums with the variegated foliage.

Nasturtiums are SO rad! I know many of us would not admit to liking them. I have been growing them since I was a kid. My colleague down south refers to them as ‘dago pansies’.
