in a vase on monday


With all of the autumnal, burnished tones cropping up out there, I’m kind of going against the grain with this bouquet. The Anemone ‘Honorine De Jobert’ has been blooming for quite a while and I didn’t want to miss out on featuring it in a vase. After cutting a few stems of that, I decided to add a few white Cosmos to fill in. Some are the straight singles and others are the seashell form. The striped blades of Miscanthus ?, a few stems of Chasmanthium latifolium, Lonicera nitida ‘Lemon Beauty’ and Bouteloua gracilis ‘Blonde Ambition’ are held in place in an oval clear glass vase by river rocks.

One of my favorite features of the anemone is the little balls that are left behind as the petals fall.


I needed a plain background to set off the delicacy of this arrangement, making it difficult to get far enough away to include the whole thing in the picture frame. This was the best I could do. Once again, I am joining Cathy at (Rambling in the Garden) for her weekly In a Vase on Monday meme. Why not join in and let your inner floral designer shine?

  1. This arrangement looks more like light-hearted spring than autumn, it makes me want to dash into the garden and fill a vase with white and pale green (but there isn’t any of that so it may have to be silver, this is one of my favourite vases this week, I love it!

  2. An oval vase – that’s so unusual! I really like the subtle palette of this rickii, and your inclusion of the spent (anemone?) flower heads too. The stripey grass was a great link between the whites and the greens as well. Thanks for sharing.

    • This oval vase was as close as I could come to that fab rectangular base Christina has used the last two weeks. I’m going to be on the hunt for one of those.

  3. I love ‘Honorine Jobert’. I used to have some but she abandoned me. Those gleaming white flowers with the gold centers look so good surrounded by autumn colors.
