I haven't posted a vase on Monday for some time but here's a quick, very quick, share of today's one.
I admit this is one I prepared earlier. The rainy weather hasn't been kind to my roses. It's so sad. Buds have been balling or the petals have just been reduced to sad brown wilted unloveliness. However, a bit of judicious deadheading and a day of sunshine here and there has helped revive a few including this Amber Queen.
I've teamed her up with Lady's Mantle, alchemilla mollis, and lysmachia 'Firecracker'.
The foliage of Firecracker - the leaves are a great colour and it has pretty little yellow flowers. It's an invasive plant that pops up everywhere, often where it's not wanted.
I won't be around to comment for much of the day. We're off to Edinburgh - taking our niece for a check-up at the Royal Infirmary there so no chance of doing any nostalgic sightseeing. I hope to catch up with Cathy's meme, In A Vase On Monday, later, or even it might be tomorrow depending on how late it is by the time we get home.
