In a Vase on Monday: 4th of July!

This Monday coincides with our celebration of the 4th of July, American Independence Day. What else could we put in our vase this day than red, white and blue.




The flowers are ‘Early Red’ daylily, ‘White Swan’ coneflower, and ‘Endless Summer’ hydrangea.

Please visit the originator of this wonderful invitation to share our gardens’ flowers on a Monday. See Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for her vase and that of others.

    Happy celebration – GB’s colours are also red, white and blue which is strange if you think about it! Enjoy the day!

    Very patriotically 🙂
    Just as well you had the appropriate colours in your garden or did you plan that all along?
