The contents of the vase simply wouldn't cooperate and kept flopping all over the place. A wiser person might have tied the stems together before putting them in the vase.
The hardy fuchsias are still blooming like there's no tomorrow, bless them. Japanese Anemones, and a few sprigs of Calluna vulgaris 'Peter Sparks' which had to come home with me because of the name.
A late bloom of Parahebe perfoliata, and foliage from Lonicera nitida, Senecio vira vira, and Sambucus nigra got thrown in.
Oh yes, and a bit of Origanum 'Kent Beauty' caught my eye as well.
Would any of this stand up in the middle of the vase? No. It all wanted to flop over to the sides. Oh well, sometimes the flowers win.
here to see what others have found to bring inside to brighten their week. Thanks again Cathy for hosting and inspiring!
