In a Vase on Monday

 We had a couple of people in for lunch this weekend and I made up a vase of flowers. I remembered Cathy's meme of a In a Vase on Monday so I thought I would share it with you. It is that time of year when here I don't have a whole lot of blooms to gather.
I do have a black vase to use. I think that is appropriate for Halloween times. I used to collect what we call here Black Carnival Glass. It looks black but if you hold it to the light you see purple. That always has fascinated me. Some of the black glass I have is truly pure black. I enjoy it all. Black goes with everything.
The flowers in the vase are a white mum which I don't know the name of,, Wendy's Wish'  Salvia and the Persicaria ' Red Dragon'. I love the Persicaria because it has those red stems to go along with the delicate little white blooms. They work in a vase like Baby's Breath. Light airy but has much more pizzazz with those red stems.
If you have a vase of flowers to share or just want some inspiration head over to Cathy's blog and have a look around. 
Have a great week.


  1. How right you are: black goes with everything!

  2. Very informative. Thank you!

  3. How lovely! I'd never thought of adding persicaria. Thank you for the inspiration!

  4. A lovely arrangement and it looks great on your table! I agree: Persicaria is a great idea. :)

  5. Lovely arrangement! I would never have thought of persicaria, but it really looks great!

  6. It's beautiful! I hope to see you at the Garden Bloggers Fling! :)

  7. Looks wonderful, especially with the black furniture. I have some of that Portmerion china and love it. Looks so pretty empty.
