I fell in love with this little vase without even thinking about how useful it would be late in the season, when the pickings are sparse.
I was down to a single Zinnia today, but it makes up in pizazz whatever lack there may be in numbers.
If there is to be only one, I feel lucky that it is a red one.
Meanwhile, the dahlias keep coming, so I refreshed last week’s bouquet and added some little off-white pumpkins from the grocery store. This meme is bound to get ever more interesting as flowers fade and we must go farther afield to find material to put “In A Vase On Monday”. Won’t you join us?
Great vase and it’s just the right thing for the last zinnia.
Oh to grow dahlias like that!
Shirley~Do Dahlias not do well for you? I would think they would…maybe in a cutting garden off to the side somewhere. I can see how they would not exactly fit the overall scheme.
Shirley is right, as the vase is perfect for the zinnia – I love the shape and the angle of the neck as well as the colour. I think I could manage a single zinnia next week! Good that you have thought to refresh your vase from last week – these things just become a habit after a while, I think. I am so pleased that you are enthused by this meme and are already thinking ahead – it is a different challenge altogether in the winter, but like the summer we soon see potential that we might have missed before.
Cathy~I’m already looking forward to the challenge of the winter months. You are so right: I look not only at the garden, but in thrift shops through new eyes.
That’s a lovely vase, and a lovely zinnia. Often simple is quite beautiful.
Hoov~Being a kinda simple sort, it’s nice to be appreciated.
What a beautiful vase and I agree with everyone, it’s perfect for that zingy red zinnia! Dahlias are such gorgeous creatures!
Peter~As the bounty dwindles, I find myself savoring each and every bloom.
Love that vase! (It wasn’t a thrift shop score was it?)
I think I’m going to have to join up with this one, should be fun to see what possibilities are out there through the cold and wet months.
Loree~I found that cutie at Dorcas Flowers near PSU. I hope you do join in and bring some spiky fun to the party.
I love that little vase. And I am a fan of zinnias too. And Dahlias. This is one reason we’re friends. 🙂
Grace~Friends forever. I’m even starting to like pink.
I love your little green vase and it is perfect for the brightly coloured zinnia. what a gorgeous red! looks great alongside your well used casserole, which I imagine producing lovely winter soups!
Christina~It is getting to be soup time by the fire, isn’t it?
