One of the garden tasks I most enjoy is deadheading. I can wander around sniffing, patting and admiring whilst snipping away at anything that's gone over. And as I go I can't resist rescuing any flower that's been broken off, knocked over (by visiting cats?) or nibbled at by appreciative bugs. End result - two little vasefuls.

I've also popped leucanthemum x superbum 'Crazy Daisy' in both vases - these double white flowers, a unique strain of Shasta daisy with fringed petals surrounding a golden centre, make great vase fillers.
Linking this post to Cathy's meme In A Vase On Monday on Rambling in the Garden and joining with many others who share whatever they have found to put in a vase this week. If you have filled a vase today I'm sure you would be very welcome to join in too.
