Although this could very well be a picture of me finding a new treasure at a favorite nursery, it's actually an illustration by David Catrow for a children's book called Plantzilla.

In A Vase On Monday

A busy week and weekend found me rushing around late Sunday afternoon to find something to quickly throw into a container.  Fuchsias are still blooming their heads off in my garden so a few got trimmed away from a path and quickly tossed into a crystalline glazed vase.  There aren't a lot of vase-worthy late summer blooms in my garden at the moment but I couldn't bring myself to do an evergreen foliage arrangement quite yet.

 Many thanks to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for sponsoring In a Vase on Monday!  Visit her blog to enjoy what others are putting in their vases this week.

  1. Nothing like a tall vase with flowers that droop. Gorgeous. And yes, too early to do all-green arrangements.

    I love the way fuchsias hang like little lanterns and the glaze on your vase is beautiful...I like the oak dresser, too. ;)

    1. Thanks Eliza! It's a cool piece of furniture that I've been storing for a friend for about 10 years now.
