Monday Vase: Dozens of Daisies

Monday vase meme
It must be admitted that just now I have a good many daisies blooming!  And today I combined them - five different types of daisy-form flowers - in one vase.

There are four Tetraneuris blooms, some paper daisies (Helipterum roseum), a cluster of Damianita (Chrysactinia mexicana), a single Berlandiera flower, and a couple of Argyranthemums.  All put together into a small, unglazed, stoneware pot I made years ago.  I added a tuft of lemon thyme and some rosemary to fill out the posy.

I photographed it in the kitchen, on a counter...

...and in a window sill.

After I brought all of the flowers in, I happened to go back outside and noticed that some suckers needed to be removed from the bottom of one of the lemon trees.  Out came the clippers and in came the stems (complete with a few blossoms) and - just like that - I had a second vase.  In some ways I felt it was better than the daisy vase, being simpler.  I decided I wanted to present both; but in order to allow each its own space, I have posted the lemon blossom vase to my recently created second blog, Journal of a Thousand Things.  (Yes, another blog...)   In any case, this is a good excuse to introduce the new blog!

But for right here and now, I have an assortment of daisies.  I know that Kris, at least, will approve ;-)  And I present it for today's Monday Vase meme with Cathy at  Rambling in the Garden, where some very fragrant flowers take the stage and links to many other vases may be followed!

Happy Monday!

    1. The paper daisies are turning out to be real winners! I grew the variety "Pierrot" once years ago and liked it too.
