Four small rosebuds and a daisy went into today's vase. This is a tiny one, made up in a miniature creamer with its own saucer.
The little pitcher is all of two and a half inches high (about 6.5 cm), and the saucer extends to 5 inches (12.5 cm). Both are adorned with bright blue forget-me-nots, while butterflies and a dragonfly also make their appearance. The set was given me by my sister, who has an eye for ferreting these things out in the most unpromising shelves of "stuff". (For those interested, both pieces are stamped "Limoges/France", and I have no idea on the date.)
As for the contents of the bouquet, the yellow floribunda "Sun Flare" gave a few buds - smaller than they were a month ago, but still nicely formed. And since I recently planted a little marguerite daisy (Argyranthemum frutescens), I had one bright daisy for today as well.
The foliage is also from a new addition to the garden: a young pineapple sage (Salvia elegans), whose aromatic leaves have a good yellow glow to the green. The petioles are purple-red, providing an additional colour accent.
As always, it's great fun - if sometimes challenging - to join in Cathy's Monday Vase meme at Rambling in the Garden: a good place to go check out what others have created this week!
