A few of the blues and purples around at the moment.
I've got Scabious, Aster, Salvia, White Achillea, Flax, Catanache, Verbena bonariensis and Daucus carota.
The funniest thing I've used is Elaeagnus ebbingei flowers. We pruned a hedge and have a huge pile of prunings. I think some will be useful for weaving into wreaths. The flowers are tiny and white and smell delicious (at the front and far right of the vase). I cut off all the leaves and popped in the stems.
As usual I'm joining in with Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for In a Vase on Monday.
This is a bouquet I made for a friend's 50th on Saturday. Luckily some of my dahlias survived the storm. I should have cut them on Friday but there were enough still upright, amazingly.
Her partner threw a surprise party with balloons, cake, a band, food and then finished the evening by proposing! Quite an evening, happy faces all around.
Dahlia's are Karma Lagoon (front) and Karma Naomi. I think Thomas A Edison is peeping out from the back.
